Third person arrested in murder of retired police sergeant
A third person was arrested in the shooting death of a retired Chicago Police sergeant.
Nicholas Heisler is in custody in Indiana, awaiting extradition to Illinois.
His arrest was announced hours after 16-year-old Jeremy Montana Mendez was denied bail in the murder of Elmer Brown, 73, who died about two weeks after the March 10 break-in.
Earlier this month, Jesse Kazmierski, 18, was charged with murder and felony home invasion.
Kazmierski and Mendez are cousins, and Heisler is a friend.
Police say the suspects drove from Indiana and forced their way into Brown’s home on the far south side of Chicago, thinking Brown kept a lot of cash in a safe.
Brown worked for the Chicago Police Department for 38 years.
