Associate Judge Raymond Myles, 66, and a 52-year-old woman were found outside the home in the 9400 block of South Forest Avenue around 4:50 a.m., police said.
Myles suffered several gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said. The woman was hit in the leg and was taken to Christ in serious condition.
Police roped off much of the block as investigators combed the backyard of the judge’s two-story brick home with its manicured lawn and well-maintained shrubs.
I am no sure what the deceased Judge’s green thumb has to do with his violent homicide. Cook County is out of control, and there is no end in sight to the violence. Rahm will not even punish criminals who beat and rob his son harshly. Chicago is a war zone.
