CHICAGO (CBS) — Police in Indiana suspect a dismembered body found in a garage in Chicago’s Hegewisch neighborhood belong to a man who disappeared more than a year-and-a-half ago.
Chicago police were conducting an investigation after finding the body Sunday afternoon in the 13300 block of South Avenue M, after neighbors smelled a foul odor coming from the garage and alley, and then called police.
The Cook County Medical Examiner says the manner of death was homicide – and that an autopsy showed the man died from “multiple gunshot wounds to the head.”
Investigators arrived at the scene at 3:20 p.m. Sunday. Sources said the victim’s body had been dismembered and wrapped in plastic.
Neighbors said the victim’s friends broke down the garage door, looking for their loved one, and discovered the body.
