    Chicago police were called to the scene in the 8600-block of South Honore in Gresham around 7 a.m. Friday after neighbors made the gruesome discovery underneath the burning red Kia Soul... "When she stepped out, it was a young lady under the car, unclothed and screaming," Worell said. Police said clothing that may belong to the victim was found in a nearby trash can.

    Another body was found burning in a vehicle in the SAME neighborhood on the SAME day.


    A person was found dead in a burning vehicle in Auburn Gresham Friday morning, almost three hours before a woman was found beneath a burning SUV in the same neighborhood.

    The body was found about 5 a.m. in a burning vehicle in the 8400 block of South Gilbert Court, police said.
    About 7:45 a.m. Friday, a 46-year-old woman was found dead near a burning SUV in the 8600 block of South Honore Street, authorities said. The police Bomb and Arson Unit is also investigating that incident.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    Oh, wow. So who's this other person, I wonder, and what's the connection?
