Springfield, Illinois – On February 16, 2024, around 12:22 p.m., Sangamon County Dispatch received a 911 call from a woman who said she wanted to kill Alderman Chuck Redpath. Springfield Leaks obtained a copy of the 911 call, which is available at the bottom of the article.

The woman, who identified herself as Samantha G. White, age 43, called Sangamon County 911 dispatch, and the conversation went as follows:

“I need to know where Chuck Redpath is,” White said.

“Ok, where do you need the police?” the dispatcher responded.

“Because I’m going to go kill him,” White then said.

“Ok, why is that?” the dispatcher inquired.

“Because he’s out looking for me,” White explained.

“He’s out looking for you?” the dispatcher clarified.

“Oh yeah, because I reported him,” White replied.

When the dispatcher asked her what her name was, she said, “Oh, you know who I am.”

“I do not,” the dispatcher responded.

“Everybody knows who I am,” she answered.

She then told the dispatcher that her name is Samantha White.

Officers were dispatched to her house, but she wasn’t located there. A Springfield Police Sergeant then authorized a ping on her cell phone. According to police, Samantha said that she was looking for Alderman Redpath because he was looking for her, due to her reporting him for sexual harassment on a military base in the past.

Samantha was eventually located around 1:17 p.m., after being stopped at 6th and Bryn Mawr Blvd.

Inside her vehicle, officers say Samantha had a baseball bat sitting on the floorboard of the passenger side of the car, which was easily accessible from the driver’s seat.

When officers spoke with Samantha, she stated that she was having a manic episode due to some medication she wanted to change and that she had not slept due to her hatred of Alderman Redpath. Samantha was transported to Memorial Behavioral Health to be screened and involuntarily admitted due to her mental health in the past and the current incident. However, Samantha was released from the hospital at 10:44 p.m., and transported to the Sangamon County Jail. She was charged by the Sangamon County State’s Attorney’s Office with Threatening a Public Official, a class 3 felony.

On February 20, 2024, Samantha, who doesn’t have a criminal record, was granted pre-trial release from the Sangamon County Jail. As part of her release conditions, she was ordered to wear an electronic monitoring device, stay 500 feet away from the municipal building unless for official business, and have no contact with Alderman Redpath.

Samantha is expected to return to court on February 29, 2024 at 9:00 a.m.
