Hanrahan served as U.S. Attorney in the 1960s before becoming  Cook County State’s Attorney.

By The Chicago Tribune
CHICAGO — Edward V. Hanrahan’s promising political career ended in a hail of gunfire, when officers from the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office killed two Black Panthers in a pre-dawn raid on Dec. 4, 1969.

A firestorm of controversy and years of court hearings followed. Mr. Hanrahan, who had once been seen as a potential mayor or governor, was defeated by a Republican in a bid for reelection as the county’s top prosecutor in 1972.

Indicted on conspiracy charges as a result of the Panthers raid but later cleared, Mr. Hanrahan never again held elected office.

Mr. Hanrahan, 88, died today. His death was confirmed by Peterson Funeral Home in Chicago, which is handling arrangements. The cause of death and other details were not immediately available.
