Chicago teen charged with murder in decapitation
A charge of first degree murder is filed against an 18-year-old man after the body of a 41-year-old man was found decapitated on the northwest side Christmas morning.
Alexis Valdez of the 5000 block of Drummond Pl was arrested at the scene of the homicide in the 2500 block of North Kildare Ave.
The victim’s body was found in a basement apartment.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office listed the man’s name as unknown.
Waldez was taken into custody outside the building “without incident” and his relationship to the victim has still not been made clear.
