Foxx's plea comes after reports that authorities in Fulton County, Georgia launched a criminal investigation into Kelly, who is alleged to have previously abused and otherwise mistreated women in an Atlanta-area home.

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.

Savage told the officer that Mason had called him around 3:10 p.m. on May 23 and said, "I'm gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I'm gonna get you, I'm gonna (expletive) kill you".

"I believe a hundred percent that me and my family are in danger", Timothy Savage said after he reported the alleged threats to police.

Savage previously denied allegations that Kelly kept her against her will, despite claims made by her family, who have not seen her in more than two years. "I was sickened as a prosecutor", she said.

It is unclear if investigators have had contact with Kelly or his attorneys.

The existence of a second repeating burst suggests there could be many more of the mysterious signals in the cosmos. The first FRB was recorded in 2001 and identified in 2007, while the first repeating FRB was detected in 2012.

About two dozen others joined them in the cold, some holding signs demanding R. Kelly be brought to justice.

"The recent allegations against entertainer R. Kelly in the recent Lifetime docuseries are deeply, deeply disturbing", Foxx said during a news conference on Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019, in Chicago.

Foxx said that as a survivor of sexual assault herself, she was "sickened by the allegations". Streaming live from the State Attorney's Office, Foxx issued a clear and specific call to action, urging anyone who has a story to tell to come forward. She has been in touch with families from the docu-series who are looking for their loved ones.

Future's statement rubbed a lot of people the wrong way as they pointed out that not giving it attention means that the accusations will die down and sexual predators will thrive and keep going free.

Chris Hopper, a spokesman, for the Fulton County district attorney's office, declined to comment.

A Cook County jury acquitted Kelly of all 14 counts of child pornography in 2008. Greenberg on Wednesday told WGN-TV that the allegations are "made up".
