Slain truck driver gets diesel-powered procession
A tow truck driver who was murdered last week got a fitting funeral procession Saturday.
More than 150 tow trucks escorted 27-year-old Alyssa van Meter to her final resting place in Lombard.
She was one of just three tow truck drivers employed by O’Hare Towing.
Friends say she loved to defy gender norms, and police were often surprised to see her arriving at the scene of an accident.
van Meter’s ex-boyfriend is charged with breaking into her Woodridge apartment and stabbing her to death last week.
