According to Foxx, the families of two missing women have contacted her office with information concerning R. Kelly.

Grammy winning singer and songwriter R. Kelly is under legal scrutiny in two states, Georgia and IL, for sexual and physical abuse by multiple women. The R&B singer is allegedly holding Joycelyn Savage against her will, according to her family, though she denies the allegations.

While there has not been a formal investigation launched yet by the Cook County State Attorney's Office, Foxx said she wants anyone with similar stories or information to contact her at 773-674-6492. "I'm happy where I'm at and everything is OK with me", she said.

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx announced Tuesday afternoon during a press conference they are asking anyone who may be a victim or has information about a possible victim connected to the allegations against the singer in IL to come forward so they can investigate the claims.

Singer R. Kelly is reportedly being investigated in multiple jurisdictions following the release of a Lifetime docuseries, "Surviving R. Kelly", which explores allegations that the Grammy victor sexually abused several victims over a span of decades. Griggs said Fulton County investigators "haven't confirmed or denied an investigation".

There has been no official word from the Fulton County District Attorney's Office.

"If we are going to take these allegations seriously - it isn't one of those situations where it's just forensics, we need actual witnesses and victims to have the courage to tell their stories", she said.

ESPN later reported the firing of Thibodeau as well as interest in former member of the Wolves Fred Hoiberg for the opening. May it be Hoiberg or Billups, it would take some time to instill a new system in Minnesota and get quick returns with it.

"No one has ever seen any evidence of it", he said.

Foxx said she has been "in contact with" people who have information related to claims in Cook County.

Her office covers Chicago where Kelly has a home.

A Georgia man involved with a recent documentary detailing abuse allegations against R Kelly told police the singer's manager threatened him. He was acquitted of engaging in sex acts with a 13-year-old in 2008.

Activists and reporters have for years tried to bring light to Kelly's alleged actions.

"I believe the documentary has opened up a new era".
