Man Stabbed By Wife In Edgewater Home Dies An Hour Later

CHICAGO (STMW) – A man stabbed by his wife in his home early Saturday in the North Side Edgewater neighborhood died about an hour later.

The domestic-related stabbing happened about 3:30 a.m. in the 1100 block of West Hollywood Avenue, police News Affairs Officer Daniel O’Brien said.

Henry Jones, 37, was stabbed in the shoulder by his wife at their home. He was initially taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition, O’Brien said.

Jones was pronounced dead at 4:20 a.m., according to a Cook County Medical Examiner’s office spokesman.

Police previously spoke to a person of interest in the case, that person was released and no charges have been filed as of Sunday afternoon, Police News Affairs Officer Robert Perez said.

Belmont Area detectives are investigating.

    Had to be alcohol involved….a few drinks, a few mean words, and anything can happen. I am sure she never thought it would end like that, just a terrible crime of passion.

    My little cousin will never get to know his father. this is devastating. My uncle was a good man and he lived for kids. he stayed and a bad relationship for his kids. People dont think that in an abusive relationship the man can be the victim. IN this case my uncle was the victim he’s been the victim for many years now.

  • Babygirlree

    Yes he was a wonderful dad! He stayed with her despite the evil person she really was….I don’t understand how because she is a woman they let her go free? How can she live with herself. The poor kids lost there dad because of a jealous woman. excuse me there own mother! She needs to be locked up! And believe me that lady will get whats coming to her sooner or later. He was just at our home an hour before he was murdered! RIP HENRY JONES WE MISS YOU!

    I dont understand how she could have so much anger and rage in her to do something so horrible. My uncle was a good man he loved his kids. He had so many dreams to fulfill. He always gave before he took. And he always gave inspirational words. So many things in life he cherished and what made him the happiest were his children. To even think that they were there to watch their father be stabbed to death is so horrible.

    I think that was very mess up what happen to HENRY JONES and more should be done about this case for her to be let go is just wrong with no charges it is what it is she murdered him and something need to be done about it did she once think about his family his kids that they have together more need to be done its just not rite to let this case go if this was a cop this case would have been a world wide case open for years untill they have found the person that did it and in this case they have the person and evidence why WOULD THEY DROP THIS CASE ANSWER ME THAT I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT THIS SHOULD BE KNOWN AROUND THE WORLD JUST AS ANY OTHER MURDER CASE. While his mother and father are planing for a funeral for the new year While she out celebrating her new year and enjoying life what a crazy world actions need to be taken on this case so there for u now have my email address so feel free to email me back about this and if you would like to no who this i am his sister inlaw

    • marty

      This is so sad. Did Henry work at Northwestern Memorial Hospital? Did the girlfriend work there also. What is her name? I might have some information about this. Do not let the police stop investigating. It was a planned MURDER.

      • nartsidegurl

        we all are thinkinn this….and she will kill AGAIN…if not caught ….

      • Angel Samone Davis

        Can you please contact me via Facebook

  • A ex-coworker

    Has anything changed about this case. I used to work with him years ago.
    Have his coworkers been questioned? I’ve heard some people at the hospital got some info.

  • Bonita

    I myself is a ex-coworker and knew him when he was doing Patient Escort @ Northwestern Memorial Hospital, I learned about this today as some co-worker were talking and told me to look on youtube about a tribute to him, I am in tears because he was a gentlemen, I don’t know what is was like behind closed doors but he was very humble and always smiled @ work, I know things happen for a reason but to have his life taken like this, we would never understand, I pray for the person who did this and his family…
