BREAKING: Third homicide of 2011 reported

UPDATE MONDAY PM: Am now told the victim was a roomer in an illegal boardinghouse, and that friends persuaded the police to break in after he was not seen or heard from for two days. 

Plainfield's third homicide of 2011 is being reported late Sunday evening. I am told the body of an Hispanic male was found in a house at 316 East Front Street. His throat had been slashed, I am told.

This follows the killing of 16-year-old Shawne Lovely on John Street overnight Saturday, as well as a shooting on Berckman Street at the railroad underpass.

The Courier has a story up about tonight's discovery (see here).

Someone told me that the Feds are at work in town making raids!
It makes sense . . . the municipal and county police have been unable to get any results!
