The body of a man reported missing last week has been found, and police have ruled it a homicide.

Lester “Roy” Jones, 44, was reported missing from Union City on Saturday, according to Channel 2 Action News. Union City police found the body near an abandoned house off Cotter Drive.

Patrick McDonald told Channel 2 he gave Jones his car and bank card to go to Wal-Mart last Thursday, but he never returned. Surveillance video shows three men in the car attempting to use the card at an ATM, and one is wearing a surgical mask, the station reported.

The stolen car was later found crashed in Chicago after being used to commit more crimes, and police have suspects in custody.

State Sen. Napoleon Harris Fights Off Muggers, Helps Catch Murder Suspects
September 22, 2016 11:20 AM


CHICAGO (CBS) — A south suburban state lawmaker appears to have played a role in the capture of three murder suspects from Georgia after being the victim of a mugging earlier this month.

State Sen. Napoleon Harris (D-Harvey) owns two Beggars Pizza franchises in Oak Forest and Harvey; and decided to give his “overwhelmed” delivery crew a break late one night earlier this month, according to his spokesman Sean Howard.

Harris was trying to make a delivery at a house on 158th and Paulina in Harvey, but Howard said the whole order had been a ruse, and that four men attacked the senator when he arrived at the vacant house, which is up for sale.

Howard said the attackers didn’t count on the victim getting the better of them.

“This wasn’t the average 5-foot-9 delivery guy,” Howard said.

Harris, 37, is 6-foot-3, 250 pounds, and is also a former star linebacker for the Northwestern Wildcats, and played seven seasons in the NFL for the Minnesota Vikings, Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders.

“They put a chokehold on the senator, but to no avail. They were really trying to choke him to death, and he was just too strong. He out-powered all four of them,” Howard said. “As they were all beating on him, one guy just went out of his way and really hit him hard, and Napoleon never moved. He just looked at him like Hulk Hogan, and from that the guys knew that we better get out of here, because we can’t get this guy down.”
