he's in critical condition tonight. police say the gunman was in an older model car with a tan hood. and he fired at the group during a dry by. family of a man whose headless body was found yesterday say it was suicide. collin dalebroux's remains were found a few hours after several residents heard a loud explosion. he was killed by a pipe bomb. the bomb squad detonated a second found near his body. tonight his family released a statement saying we are devastated that our beloved son colin dalebroux lost his 15 year battle with depression. we know that colin committed suicide. a 14-year-old says she was assaulted at six flags. the teen was assaulted by a 26- year-old park man in august. it's an article that could have been bad for business. so did it turn into a case of
campus censorship? dan ponce live with details. >> reporter: a little battle out here over first amendment rights. the student news editor of the chicago flame is angry with the student bookstore and the publisher of her own paper. the chicago flame isn't directly affiliated with uic but it counts on the university for a chunk of revenue. wrote a story looking into prices of books at the bookstore. the story never got published. because according to the editor, the bookstore didn't approve of the article and forced them not to run it. ruben said they ignored the students' first amendment rights. the uic bookstore has proven once again it's run as a corporation putting profits first and students second. >> i don't believe i did anything wrong. i believe that people are angry
i told the truth. >> reporter: ruben also says the bookstore is concerned with ad dollars. >> i have the right to express my opinion. even if the flame itself, the publisher isn't happy about it. >> reporter: greg pratt is the former news editor for the chicago flame. he says in the past he felt the same kind of pressure. >> i got an e-mail from our marketing man telling me to tone down our coverage a bit because they were afraid of losing sponsors because people on campus were upset with us. >> reporter: the flame says it was inaccurate. an e-mail states the article was brought to my attention because of lack of factual material and other errors. at that point, i stopped it from being published. and the university says it had nothing to do with the article not running. a spokesman said today the concern was on the paper's end.
we never threatened them with loss of advertising. from now on the publisher will proofread all articles before they go to print. >> it's supposed to be an independent university, independent from the university. and this is not independent free speech newspaper anymore. >> reporter: the student news editor says there will be a meeting this monday with the paper's publisher. again she says she's been told she will not be fired for writing this scathing editorial. she says that they have agreed to quote, use this as a learning experience moving forward. we did reach out to the publisher of this paper. she decline our request for an oncamera interview. but she sent an e-mail saying the reason they pulled the article was because it was factually inaccurate, not because of pressure from the university.

minnesota and that was a after a night of freezing temperatures. thing that strikes you about the weather pattern that has shaped up is the speed with which canada is filled with cold air. it's oozed into the northern tier of states too. that will never really in full strength come down into the chicago area. because the upper winds are strong from the west. still winds off the lake will be a big factor this weekend. and we've had clouds increase through the day. our models show storms developing as the night goes on. we expect these to thicken up as the night proceeds. but it's 72 tonight and that's not bad at o'hare. 74 at midway. here you see a plot of the temperatures across the metro area. and the dew points which have crept higher. they mask the fact of low dew

. dallas coming up. that sounds like trouble. >> good luck. >> put it out in front. >> the offense line was shady here. it's been that way there but they've got reinforcements. the snapshot for all the critics of the offense is with nine minutes left the other day and everybody is pointing the finger at lovie smith. as rich king reports, somebody else was taking the blame today. >> reporter: the bears tried at rushing. then in the air.
and finally two more times on the ground. the goal line offense was offensive and today the boss took the blame. >> this is me. this is all on me. i blame myself for this. we did not spend the time we need to spend on it. trying to get the other things ready. i felt comfortable where we were. we got to get the nuances. >> that's one of the positions where you're four downs from the 2-inch line, you should be able to score. >> reporter: the bears did move the ball outside their red zone against the lions. but hester caught a pass. it was a target only one time. >> that's the way it goes. the more you get the ball you want that's when you might get the team to win it. that's what i'm hoping this week. getting my hands on the ball more. try to help out the team as much as i can. >> reporter: the bears' offense
still racked up 463 yards against the lions. against a rugged cowboys defense next. rich king, wgn news. as for the white sox, it was fun while it lasted. but the dream ends hard tonight against the twins. realistically they had to sweep this series. then they lost the opener last night. the writing was on the wall after that one. tonight, gavin floyd started pretty good. in the 5th, joe mauer got him good. a 3-0 lead there. not that they're not really good, because they are. but the twins always seem to catch a break or two. denard cheaply done here. 6-0 in the 6th. then in the 7th, just in case they forgot they let them go. it's a two-run single to make it 8-2 twins. they lead it in the 9th, about to take an eight game lead with 17 left to play.
cubs have had plenty of frustration. now the cardinals are feeling it. chris carpenter upset. four hits, one earned run. he was losing 2-1 in the 7th when this happened. tyler colvin got all that off carpenter. with two cubs aboard. a three-run homer. he hits the 20 mark and they're about to sweep the cards in st. louis for the first time in 22 years. and the big heard all smiles tonight. rocky wuertz, mike shshefski. world title this weekend where he had the pleasure of coaching bulls star derek rose. >> he wants to do well all the time.
i thought his defensive pressure was terrific. and then he could -- he just pushes the ball down the court so well. i love derek. such a team player. the bulls are obviously really happy to have him. they should be because he's top quality as a player and person. >> bulls training camp, two weeks. >> feels year round. >> then hockey this weekend. here we go. >> that's the news for this wednesday night. i'm micah materre. >> and i'm mark suppelsa. have a great night. >> bye. have you tried honey bunches of oats with real strawberries? wow. it's seriously strawberry. they're everywhere. it's in the bunches, on the flakes, even real strawberries in the mix. can i have some more? honey bunches of oats with real strawberries. it's delicious. nobody does it quite like us. your baby sister has something to say. this intervention brought to you by niaspan. so now your doctor's talking about plaque
