A student at Kelly High School, Raymond Palomino was the only suspect not wearing a mask in the video. His father spoke out as his son appeared in court.
“I think it’s very disturbing what they did to him [the victim]. When I asked him [son, Raymond Palomino] why he did it, he said he didn’t know why he did it,” Michael Palomino told ABC7 Chicago Wednesday. “I told him I was really upset, what he did was wrong. Like I said, it’s very disturbing what I’ve seen in the video.”
Raymond Palomino’s father has worked for the Cook County sheriff’s office for 30 years. When he found out his son may have been involved, he says he turned him into police.
