Chicago Police released a sketch Monday of the man believed to have murdered a Gold Coast business owner.

SketchOn March 1, 66-year-old Herbert Goode was shot outside of his South Side factory complex where he had worked for 30 years.  He was the owner of Silver Cloud Galleries, a custom framing company with a storefront at 20 W. Ohio St.
