    This Creep Used To Be My Neighbor

    OMG I knew it would be just a matter of time before I read something on this P.O.S.

    http://www.dailyherald.com/story/print/?id=100302

    Back when this guy was 14 years old him and his mother lived in the same building as me. I was a stay at home mom at the time so I knew that this kid was a problem. Not to mention he was NEVER in school. His mother traveled for her job and left him alone A lot.

    I reported his sorry butt to the cops because of what some of the neighborhood kids told me.

    While his mother was not home he brought 2 other boys (ages 7 and 8) into his apartment and tried to pay them to perform oral sex on him. Stating "that it is normal, everyone does it"

    I reported this to the Schaumburg cops and the mother of the other two boys. But the mother did not want to press charges because I don't think she believed it. So end of investigation on the sexual abuse or the attempt of it. Nothing was done about his mother leaving him home alone for extended periods of time because contrary to popular belief there is NO law for this in Illinois. It is left up to the parents to decide if a teenager can stay alone.
    The most that was done was a truancy officer was assigned to him and he was made to go to school.

    This may never have happened if someone had listened to me YEARS ago!

    I think I am going to contact the police again and tell them that they need to go back at least 18-19 years in thier search for other victims.

    Oh, gidget, this is awful. I wish they would have listened to you. Who knows how many kids (wow, seems he likes both sexes) they might have saved.

    I'd be upset too. Is there any way you can contact your old neighbor (the mom that didn't believe) to see if they can help this case?

    Sounds like HIS mom knew there was a problem too.

    I used to have the other kids mothers name somewhere. For the life of me the only thing I can remember off the top of my head is the name of her little girl. Not even the names of the boys! I am hoping that they are still local and saw the story and contact the cops too.

    Oh POS's mother knew he was a problem. But she was a problem too...never home, creepy boyfriend, and a drunk too. One of those parents that attacked you verbally if you so much as hinted that her kid did something wrong. There was no father in the picture that I am aware of.

    Since the victim attended a school in Dist. 54 I am assuming he had a position there. I will have to see if I can find his name anywhere on the dist.'s various web sites.

    Gidget, creepy. I wonder how many other neighbors along the way were as responisble as you, and he got away with it? I checked it out and at some point he lived in Kileen, Texas and Fort Hood as well. Looks like the woman he married came from Kileen. His buddy on Myspace had it right when he called him scumbag.

    gidget641 this a different Chad Hardy than the one you knew

    I wish you were right about the Chad Hardy you knew and that this was his doing. This Chad Hardy is originally from 5 hours Downstate and only moved to the Chicago area this last summer. I have known him 18 years since he was a High School student of mine and until this my friend. I have known his wife just as long and all three of their girls since birth.
    I keep wondering if I missed something in the way he acted that could have been a warning. I have heard all the signs to look for at school How could I miss this???

    I did not know anything was wrong until I got an email from another friend K in the Chicago area Wednesday saying that Chad was depressed and would not tell him why. Since I was a longer term friend K wanted me to call and find out what was wrong. I did not try until Thursday but by then he was already in jail. I did not know why I only got voicemail until Saturday when I tried his wife P. She would not tell me what was wrong only that Chad did not come down with them as planned because he was in jail. She said what the bail was but only said don't make me tell you what he did(like I would or could) She did say it was family and not work related.
    I thought maybe he had gotten mad at someone who threatened her or the girls or that he hit her (which did not seem likely to me). I sent an email to K wanting to know what was going on (I did not have his new number then) and then did a Google search. I almost threw up.

    You know how the serial killer's neighbor always says they were the best neighbor etc... That was Chad. None of the people who knew him here can believe this..... We know it is true he admitted it but it seems so out of character for him. He is not related to anybody in Chicago other than the girls How could he do this......... He was one of my boys one of the kids I had helped get through high school and he seemed to be doing well finally just getting an EET degree and finding a job in Chicago. When he first got out of SIU and could not find a job locally I helped him get a part time teaching job at the Community College I teach at now.
    I helped him move up to Chicago. He was in my house at least once a month when the guys would come over to play cards. After he moved when he would come to our monthy game I let him sleep on the spare bed in the basement luckily none of those weekends my 10 year old daughter was home. Normally when the guys come my parents or my wifes have our daughter over for the weekend.
    I keep trying to remember was he ever alone with my daughter. Yes I have started asking trying to be very careful so that she does not know what he did. She also knows the girls and use to play with them some.

    The only thing I have noticed about Chad that is wrong at all is the diabetes he has had for the last 10 or 12 years. He does not take his shots like he is suppose (no matter how much we all badgered him) so he really has been an uncontrolled diabetic for that time. Did that cause him to slip a major cog????????
    Did this only start December 1st like the papers up there say or has this been going on for years???????? Do I try to call P his wife and help out or even though I have actually known her longer will I be seen as being to close to him and scare the girls?????
    How did this happen? What did we miss? Could we have stopped him? How do I face P or the girls again? We were their friends..........

    He won't last in jail which is for the best I just hope for the sake of the old Chad my friend what little is left of him that his end is quick.........

    P and the girls need friends now more than ever - they need you. Their husband and father is sick and broken, and gone.

    Thanks, I knew that but I guess I just needed to vent to people that don't know him. I will call her before she leaves town to go back north.

    I also agree she and the children will need your friendship more then anything. I'm sure she is feeling the same as you are right now in total shock,never dreaming he could harm a child. We have to face reality what this evil being did to a precious little child is unforgiveable. There is not one excuse that could ever be said to make it ok, IMO I'm not just judging him this stands for anyone who harms a precious child. I hope you don't waste your breath on him, I'm sure even if he wife was to ask him WHY he's most likely say I don't know why I wish I did. The best advise I can give you is to let his wife know that you are there for her and the girls but that you don't know the evil chad.My heart truly goes out to you, he was a good friend for many years never dreaming that he could harm another let a long a child.

    Elecman, please let me know if that's the wrong myspace link so I can remove it as well. I would say to let P know that you are there if she needs you. She must be horrified at what is happening, and kids can pick up on that, so they are probably wondering what the heck is going on as well. I really, really hope his own daughters weren't abused. Thank you for the information.

    Sadly, I think more and more of us are going to know a family member, friend or an acquaintance that have done something like this. It's just becoming so prevalent in our world.

    At least it's also becoming an issue people don't shy away from anymore, and for the most part our children are growing up knowing they can speak out about abuse and something will be done about it.

    Elecman, you believe that the child in question was one of his own daughters? That is even more devastating.

    He is not related to anybody in Chicago other than the girls How could he do this.........

    And he threatened her with a gun!

    He's off his rocker, for sure. If he were (had been) my friend, I don't think I would worry about how quickly or how painfully he met his end in prison.

    I hope you can put your mind at ease about your daughter. That's a bad feeling.
