The Cook County state's attorney's office has reopened its investigation of the abortion-related death of a Hammond woman because of information provided by the Sun-Times and Better Government Assn. The woman, 26-year-old Sherry Emry, died Jan. 2 after undergoing an abortion at the Water Tower Reproductive Center, 840 N. Michigan. First Assistant State's Atty. Barry Gross said, "Based on information we received from you about the practices at that clinic, we are pursuing the [Emry] case."
