You're kidding, Right??? They weren't searching the area, Tom Henry was the target. They had an effing bullhorn out for goodness sake. I know the brothers work(ed) for the city, so I guess i can understand, but eventually you going to have to stop pulling the wool over the citizens eyes. It is disrespectful.

L.A. found O.J.s glove in less then 3 hours... DesPlaines takes five hours for some items you can get in either Wisconsin or Indiana. Deputy Chief Nick Treantafeles (because this whole article is lie) should be investigated. Not to clue the Chief in.... but the sun rises in the morning and using useless resources when their is NOBODY out between 9 p.m. and Sunrise the "mysterious" fireworks could of been searched for in the morning, But the neighborhood knows the truth... I demand follow up to this slight of hand! Corner the chief, interview the neighbors , They pay the taxes, they work for the people! Tallk to them not the chief.

Anyone who lives within in a 6 block radius of where this happened knows this story is not true.Maybe the DesPlaines Patch should ask Deputy Chief Nick Treantafeles why he is trying to COVER UP what really happened.

Can someone in the 6 block radius tell us instead of hinting that they know
