Update from Mario M.
“The body that was found, was found at Rick’s ribs off of Riverside and Pleasant Drive.patrons of the establishment noticed a gentleman hunched over in his vehicle. After knocking on the window and getting no response the patrons opened the door and tried to shake the gentleman. With no response Rick the owner of the restaurant and one of the patrons Joe Sanchez pulled the gentleman out of the vehicle and he was laid upon A quilt on the ground. One of the female patrons who was in the medical field started chest compressions as the police were called by the establishment’s cashier. Once the police were on site after about a  very short wait, they took over chest compressions and also started more advanced resuscitation tactics. The gentleman was taken by ambulance to Rockford Memorial Hospital.”
