Wrongful death lawsuit filed after fatal high-rise fire

January 19, 2012
The mother of a woman who was killed in a North Lake Shore Drive high-rise fire this month has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the owners and managers of the building.
The lawsuit by JoAnn McCoy maintains that her daughter, Shantel, 32, would still be alive if the building had elevators that shut down during such a fire.
