WILMETTE, Ill. (STMW) – There are ways to impress a woman, but telling her you just killed two people and that she might be next is probably not the most skillful way to do it.

An alarmed woman called Wilmette police on Feb. 20 after receiving a call from a man she knew only as “Frosty” telling her he had just killed two rival gang members in a drive-by shooting.

He allegedly told her he was going to dispose of the bodies by burning them in a garbage can, then asked her for $350 in get-away money. If she didn’t give him the money, he said, she’d be killed next. And he was on his way to her Skokie workplace.

The woman told police Frosty was a drug dealer and she’d seen him carrying a gun.

Wilmette police contacted Rogers Park District police because the man said that’s where he committed the killings, but Chicago Police had no reports of shootings.

They then contacted Skokie police, who found the man parked outside the woman’s workplace. He allegedly told officers he made up the whole story to impress the woman, which he realized was “a big mistake.”

No charges were filed, but police told the man the woman wanted no further contact with him, and he should not return to her workplace.
