  5. This is great news - While there will likely be no joy in this arrest for Jacob's family, I have to believe some sense of closure will be felt if the perpetrator has been captured. Hoping for justice on his behalf. ��

  8. I'm THRILLED!!! I couldn't be happier today! It made my day! It made my week! It brought sunshine where it was needed most! Honked the horn for a while on the way home today after hearing the news, even passing by the old house! Couldn't resist. Thank you to all involved!!! Thank you to his dear friends and partners in crime, you know who you are, for all the love and support you've given each other and his family during this time and never, ever for a moment gave up the fight to find justice for our Jacob. Hang tight and watch out for each other, especially the new friends you've made in this journey. I hope it's going to be scheduled in a very large courtroom!!

  9. Finally .. some resolution .. for a freaking phone and wallet, an innocent life brutally, needlessly taken. Let the animals rot. On ABC7 10pm news tonight; video report, including interview with his family, will probably be up soon.

  11. I still feel horrible for Jacob's family. It won't bring him back, but hopefully gives them their first good night's sleep since.

  12. CWB: you have really come into your own as the go-to place for stories about our neighborhood and our policing shortage. Please keep driving forward. Thank you for all you've done and are doing.

    1. Thank you Chicago blue! May the judge and jury have as much mercy on this animal as he had on Jacob. Vicious animals that take innocent life should be toasted.

  15. Innocent until proven guilty folks. Put the torches and pitchforks away. Let's hear his what his attorney has to say.

  16. Technically it's not a crime to have a gun up your ass if you have a conceal carry license. I'm just curious how he managed to fit a gun AND his head up his ass at the same time.

    Great work CPD and crew.

    1. What happened to the guy that called in about his injury?...was he with this guy?...did he just leave Jacob there bleeding?.....

    2. "What happened to the guy that called in about his injury?" According to prosecutors at Alvarado's bail hearing, the 911 caller was also punched and kicked by the offender(s).

  17. Excellent job by the first police on-scene, the detectives, the E.T's and crime lab. M.E.'s office, too.
    Statistically, the Klepacz homicide is an aberration in that it was not only cleared but resulted in an arrest and prosecution.
    This is the stage that approximately 20 percent of homicides in Chicago reach.
    CPD is suffering a staffing low-point not seen here before although staffing is a topic that must be better studied in comparison to other big U.S. cities.
    That said, the detectives need more personnel, training, better and more experienced supervisors, and the marching orders to go out and work these cases. Something that is not always the case.
    In addition, we need to re-visit Supt. Garry McCarthy's decision to reorganize the Areas before he merged them.
