The FBI has linked an unassuming brick home in Chicago to nearly 600 hacked personal data-storage accounts, many of them belonging to celebrities, the Associated Press reports.

Some of the photos contained nude images of female stars.

According to recently unsealed court documents, the FBI seized computers and cellphones from the home in October but has not filed charges.

The affidavit states that investigators suspected a computer was used at the home to access Apple iCloud accounts of celebrities.

No one answered the door for an AP reporter.

The FBI is investigating the October 2014 fatal shooting of a black teenager in Chicago.

The Chicago Tribune reports that the bureau opened an investigation into the death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, who was shot by on officer 16 times.

The FBI is leading the criminal probe with the help of the state’s attorney’s office and the Independent Police Review Authority.

Chicago is expected to reach a $5 million settlement over McDonald’s death.

The officer who fired the shots said he was in fear of his life.

Other officers, who were investigating McDonald for allegedly breaking into cars, never pulled a trigger and trailed McDonald until another cop opened fire.

FBI agents raided a crematorium and office building in suburban Chicago as part of what appears to be an investigation into the illegal sale and trafficking of human body parts, FOX 32 reports.

Agents cordoned off the areas with yellow tape while some of them donned hazmat suits.

The FBI declined to comment other than to say there is an investigation.

Detroit’s FBI office is leading the case after raiding the business of a former University of Michigan professor accused of being involved in the illegal trade of body parts. That case is linked to other across the country.

A DEA special agent was seriously injured after trying to stop a drug dealing suspect in a car as it entered a gas station in Chicago’s Ashburn neighborhood, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The fleeing car struck the agent, causing head injuries and a broken leg.

The agent, whose identity has not yet been released, was in serious critical condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn on Sunday evening but has been improving.

Local police and the DEA were pursuing the suspect because of information that the driver was transporting cocaine.

At least one man is in custody in connection with the case.

Weekend Series on Crime: The Chicago Mob

President Obama’s Close Friend Considered a “Hostile Witness” by Justice Department

One of President Obama’s closest friends is not cooperating in a federal investigation, prompting the Justice Department to seek Dr. Eric E. Whitaker as a “hostile witness,” the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Prosecutors filed the motion Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Springfield, where a Chicago businessman, Leon Dingle Jr., is on trial on charges of stealing more than $3 million in tax dollars from state grants.

Prosecutors said Whitaker, who has not been charged, benefited at least three times from the state grant money.

Whitaker incensed prosecutors when he backed off a deal to cooperate with investigators.

The cooperation ended, prosecutors said, when Whitaker was asked about his relationship with Quinshaunta R. Golden, the former state official who oversaw the grants.

Whitaker was asked whether he had a “sexual relationship” with Golden and refused to cooperate.

Prosecutors said he is “a witness clearly hostile to the government.”

Jack Riley, the head of the DEA’s Chicago division, is headed to a top post in Washington D.C., the Associated Press reports.

The 56-year-old, who has shed light on the influence of Mexican cartels on the Midwest, has been named the DEA’s chief of operations. The No. 3 post at the agency means Riley will oversee all DEA activity.

Riley was previously the head of the El Paso office.

He is to begin his new job next month.

A replacement has not yet been named.

FBI Sends 65 Agents into High-Crime Areas of Chicago to Crack Down on Gangs

The FBI has dispatched 65 agents across high-crime areas of Chicago to help crackdown on gang crime, Sneed reports.

“This is a new tactic the FBI is using in fighting crime,” an FBI spokeswoman said, “by working in a concentrated area and a concentrated time on the street — although the FBI has been working hand in hand and day in and day out with the police department.”

FBI agents will work with the Chicago Police Department to go after gangs on Thursdays and Fridays for the next three to four weeks, Sneed reported.

The agents plan to conduct surveillance on drug-dealing.

“They will be going after the worst of the worst, looking for people wanted on murder warrants. The fugitives may be wanted on the South Side, but who knows where in the city they’re hiding,” a top police source said.
