Suspected Serial Killer Dies from Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound After Confrontation with Law Enforcement in Texas

The man suspected of murdering at least seven people, whose bodies were found in Joliet, a Chicago suburb, has died from a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound after a confrontation with federal law enforcement in Natalia, Texas. The 23-year-old suspect was located by agents with the U.S. Marshals Service on Monday night, approximately 1,200 miles away from the crime scene. It remains unclear whether he had any ties to Texas.

Joliet police were alerted to the suspect’s death around 8:30 p.m. on Monday. Earlier in the day, officers in Joliet discovered seven bodies in two separate residences on the 2200 block of West Acres. The victims, who appear to be members of the same family, have not been identified in terms of their names, genders, or ages. The motive behind the killings is still under investigation, but authorities believe that the suspect knew the victims.

The suspect, who lived in one of the homes where the bodies were found, was also wanted in connection with two other incidents in the same area. On Sunday, a person identified as Toyosi Bakare, a 28-year-old, was found with a gunshot wound to the head on Pheasant Run Lane. Bakare was taken to a local hospital but succumbed to his injuries. The suspect was also wanted in connection with a non-life-threatening shooting that occurred on Sunday, where a victim was struck in the leg.

Law enforcement was able to link the suspect’s car to both crime scenes, leading them to conduct surveillance at the suspect’s last known address on the 2200 block of West Acres. After no sign of the suspect or the vehicle, deputies approached a home associated with the suspect and discovered blood on the door. Upon entering, they found two deceased victims. The other five victims were found at the first residence. The exact duration of their deaths is unknown.

The investigation into the motive and circumstances surrounding the killings is ongoing.
