Man charged in murder of homeless Wheaton woman
Police in Glen Ellyn have charged a man with killing a homeless woman from Wheaton.
Myron Ester will appear in bond court this morning, charged with first-degree murder.
The body of Linda Velez was found Saturday in a shallow grave near Glen Ellyn’s Panfish Park.
She lived on the street with three of her seven children; the others are in foster care.
Relatives say she was schizophrenic and manic depressive.
Investigators say Ester may have met Velez at a homeless shelter in Wheaton.
