Gage Park Murders

On February 4th, 2016 in the Gage Park suburbs of Chicago Illinois 6 bodies were discovered in a home by police. One victim was shot and the other 5 were stabbed. The police had been called to the house for a welfare check on Noe Martinez Jr, who had not showed up for work for the last few days. The victims were Maria Martinez, her two sons Leonardo and Alexi, her parents(Noe Sr. and Rosauru), and her brother Noe Martinez Jr. The police at first thought that the incident may of been a murder suicide. They ruled that out and then thought it may of been multiple attackers as bodies were in rooms all over the house.

On February 2nd, 2016 Diego Uribe who is the nephew of Maria Martinez’s ex-husband arrived at the Martinez’s household that afternoon. Uribe’s main goal was to rob the whole family. Diego Uribe had been to the house often and was also close with Maria’s 2 sons.

What happened next apparently is that Uribe went upstairs and started to argue with Maria Martinez. He then hit her in the head four times. Noe Jr (Maria’s brother) ran upstairs after hearing gun fire. Instead of shooting Noe Jr, Uribe beat him to death with his gun. When Rosauru Martinez (Maria’s mother) came up the stairs to help, Uribe pushed her down the stairs. Then when she lay on the ground Uribe went into the kitchen and acquired some knives. He then stabbed Rosaura several times. He then forced the 2 boys to collect cash for him and grab their Xbox, and what ever other valuables they had. Uribe then led the younger boy Alexis (10) downstairs and stabbed him to death. Then he returned upstairs and stabbed the older boy to death. The older boy Leo (13) begged for his life, but Uribe didn’t care and stabbed him to death anyway. After all that killing Uribe still sat around the house and waited for Noe Sr to come home, which he did with tamales and hot chocolate. When he did Uribe stabbed and beat him to death.

Uribe along with his girlfriend Jafeth Ramos got an Xbox and $550 in cash and a bunch of jewelry they only got $150 for at the pawn shop. Although Ramos is believed to have not participated in any murders, she is still considered to be an active participant in the massacre. Uribe and Ramos had a child together and lived together. Uribe had a clean record prior to the massacre. Ramos was arrested for shoplifting a year ealier. She claimed it was for food and diapers. ?

Police did not ever believe that the killings were random and always believed that the family was specifically targeted, with Maria Martinez most likely being the primary target as she was shot rather than stabbed. On May 19, 2016, Chicago police announced that they had arrested 22-year-old Diego Uribe and his 19-year-old girlfriend, Jafeth Ramos. The best break in the case is when DNA discovered under Maria’s fingernails matched Uribe. Phone records also matched him to that vicinity at the time of the murder.

Uribe and Ramos have both confessed to the murders and are both being charged with first-degree murder and held without bail. Together the 2 are charged with 493 counts, including first-degree murder and felony murder during a residential burglary.

Brown’s Chicken Massacre

Crime: The Brown’s Chicken Massacre was a sensless mass murder that occured in Palatine, Illinois (Chicago suburb) on January 8th, 1993. It went unsolved for almost 9 years until one of the cowards girlfriends came forward to police about information on the crime.
  2 men entered the restaurant and ate right before closing time and then robbed the store (stealing less than $2,000) and killed 7 employees. Shooting 6 and then stabbing 1. More than 2 dozen shots were fired at the employees. They had to empty their weapons and reload a couple of times.

James Degorski

Juan A Luna Jr. (Born February 16th, 1974): Luna was spared the death penalty due to one juror who held out. Which is total bullshit he should be shot in the back of the head (which  would be an easier punishment). Him and his acomplice James Degorski were high school classmates at Palatine’s William Fremd High School. Luna was actually a former employee at Brown’s Chicken.

James Degorski: Degorski a former handyman (whose former girlfriend turned them in) Was found guilty of all 7 count of murder on September 29th, 2009. There has also been alot of anger with some of the victims families as Degorski recently recieved punitive damages amounting to $451,000 for having a deputy kick his ass. But it is still unclear if Degorski will ever see any of the money.

The Capture: In March of 2002 James Degorski’s fomer girlfriend Anne Lockett came forward and told police about the horrific crime the sick fucks committed in 1993 A piece f chicken from the restaurant that was kept from the garbage can the night of the murders as evidence had Luna’s DNA on it.
Although Luna along with Degorski were taken into custody for the crime on May of 2002 Luna immediately admitted to it. Then lawyers later claimed he only admitted to it for fears of deportation.

  When the police arrived at the restaurant over 5 hours after the murders they discovered the rear door open. They found 7 bodies in a cooler and walk in refrigerator.
