RIPPER CREW MEMBER IS SET FOR RELEASE FROM PRISON Thomas Kokoraleis (Inmate N-42998, Stateville) who was convicted for the 1982 Murder of Lorry Borowski is scheduled to be released from prison on September 29, 2017. Kokoraleis is scheduled to be released from prison on September 29, 2017 after serving ½ of his 70 year sentence for the murder of Lorry Borowski. Under Illinois sentencing laws at the time of the murder, Kokoraleis is only required to serve half of the sentence, which is 35 years. Unfortunately, there are no petitions which can change this mandatory release. In June, Elmhurst Police Chief Michael Ruth notified the Illinois Prisoner Review Board in writing of the departments’ strong objection to the release of Kokoraleis. Chief Ruth believes that Kokoraleis presents a danger to the community if he is allowed to roam free. Elmhurst officials have met with the DuPage County States Attorney’s Office and they are aware of this pending release and are exploring all legal options possible to keep Kokoraleis in custody. On behalf of the Elmhurst Police Department, and the men and women who investigated the Lorry Borowski murder, we remain committed to justice and will keep the Borowski family in our thoughts and prayers.
