A few days ago, there was a murder in Park Ridge, a quiet, safe suburb just northwest of Chicago. This was, to say the least unusual--it's a very nice 'burb, and it borders very nice, safe neighborhoods in Chicago, including the one that my son lives in with my ex. Murders are rare in those parts.
My friend Paul Tobin at work lives in Park Ridge with his wife and four children. I was discussing it with him. Apparently it was some kind of "hit." The killer rang the doorbell and shot the poor victim at close range. Fortunately, the Park Ridge police have a good sketch of the suspect. As a public service, I've included the sketch with this post. If you see this person, please call the Park Ridge police immediately.
