CHICAGO (CBS) –Two bodies were found inside a car on the South Side on Wednesday, and one of the victims worked for Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Dorothy Brown.
It happened in West Englewood. CBS 2’s Pamela Jones reports family and friends have identified one of the victims as Antwone Price, a man with a fiancée and a 15-month-old child, and whose death is shrouded in mystery.
His body was discovered near 71st Street and Oakley Avenue around 3:20 p.m. inside a white Camaro – with the remains of another man. One was found in the trunk; the other in the backseat of the car.
Sources told CBS 2 at least one of the men appeared to be restrained – tied up in some manner.
Price worked as a cashier in Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Dorothy Brown’s office. Co-workers said he was a good and reliable employee – and they got worried Wednesday morning when he didn’t show up for work.
Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Dorothy Brown said that she was, “Just very saddened and devastated to hear. We had been reaching out trying to locate him throughout the day. The management staff of his department and we were just really really sad. Because he’s very timely and he would report in if, in fact he was not going to be here. He was here on yesterday,” said Brown.
People who work in the clerk’s office said they’ve been distraught all day.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said the cause of death for both men was undetermined as of Wednesday night.
