Chicago police question two people in connection with the death of a man– whose dismembered body was found buried in a southwest side backyard. One of them is the man’s ex girlfriend.
Cook County’s medical examiner said the man died of multiple injuries caused by a sharp object. His death is ruled a homicide. According to police, the man’s ex lured him to the 8300 block of South Scottsdale, her new boyfriend hit him over the head with a pipe and slashed his throat, then buried him in her back yard.
The woman helped put body parts in plastic bags, then buried them. The victim has been missing since May.
Investigators think the boyfriend may have fled to New Jersey.
