    Luis Guerrero(18) Strangled, stabbed, ran over by car and body set on fire.

    West Chicago's 'heart aches' for victim of 'brutal, heinous' killing

    Police continue to piece together the backgrounds of the teenagers accused of strangling, stabbing, burning and running over another teen and then hiding his death, while the West Chicago community rocked by the crime begins to recover.

    Counselors at West Chicago Community High School District 94 and in West Chicago Elementary District 33 are helping students process the Monday evening death of 18-year-old Luis Guerrero, a recent high school graduate whom former teachers and friends remembered fondly on a GoFundMe page set up to help cover his funeral costs.

    "My heart aches for the Guerrero family," his former teacher at Leman Middle School, Patricia Macko, wrote on the page. "Luis was my student in eighth grade and was a kind, caring young man."

    "I always thought that he was really well-spoken," said recent West Chicago High School graduate Gracie Vanco of Winfield, who had an honors English class with Guerrero. "He seemed really well-liked, too. He seemed to have a lot of friends."

    Many of the same peers who went to school with Guerrero also attended with suspects Francisco Alvarado and Jesus Jurado Correa, both 18 of West Chicago and 2018 graduates of the high school, and Tia R. Brewer, 16, of an unincorporated area near Wheaton, who was beginning her junior year.

    School officials said Alvarado and Correa both played football at the high school, and Correa also participated in track. The school website showed Brewer was named to the ninth-grade honor roll the second semester of her freshman year for earning a minimum GPA of 4.0 on a weighted scale, with no grades lower than a "C."

    None of the defendants has any prior criminal offenses documented in DuPage County Court records.

    Alvarado and Brewer have been charged with first-degree murder, armed robbery and concealment of a homicidal death and are held without bail. Despite her age, Brewer is charged as an adult. Both could be sentenced to life in prison without parole if convicted. Correa has been charged with concealment of a homicidal death.

    West Chicago police Cmdr. Julio Calabrese said Friday police believe none of the suspects was involved with a gang. He said officers continue to investigate their backgrounds to determine any past police contact with them or their families, but he could not release any further investigative details.

    Calabrese and Paul Darrah, spokesman for DuPage County State's Attorney Robert Berlin, said no federal or outside agencies are involved with the case.

    Now that charges have been filed, Darrah said, Supreme Court rules prohibit him or anyone with the state's attorney's office from revealing details about the suspects' family history, citizenship status, criminal history, drug use or other personal factors because these facts could be prejudicial to future prospective jurors who could be called to hear the case.

    The case involves what authorities described as a "brutal and heinous" attack, in which Alvarado and Brewer are accused of strangling Guerrero with a belt, stabbing him 16 times, lighting him on fire, running him over with a Jeep SUV, then leaving him to die in a fire pit in a West Chicago field. Correa is accused of joining Alvarado and Brewer in the field near Alvarado's house and receiving a $200 payment in exchange for delivering them a water bottle full of gasoline.

    The motive is unclear. Authorities said Brewer told police the attack was retribution because Guerrero sexually assaulted her; but police say they have no record of such a crime being reported. Alvarado told police he was meeting Guerrero to buy a cellphone when Guerrero opened a knife and a fight ensued.

    The girl claims that she was raped by the victim.

    Still that's not motive enough to spend life in prison.

    4th teen charged in grisly West Chicago murder
    POSTED 3:52 PM, AUGUST 25, 2018,

    WHEATON, Ill. ? A fourth suburban Chicago teenager has been charged in the grisly slaying of another teen who was strangled, stabbed, set on fire and run over with a vehicle earlier this month.

    In a news release, the DuPage County State?s Attorney?s Office says 18-year-old Saul Ruiz of West Chicago was charged this week with first-degree murder.

    Already charged with first-degree murder are 18-year-old Francisco Alvarado of West Chicago and 16-year-old Tia Brewer of Wheaton. Prosecutors also announced that 18-year-old Jesus Jurado Correa of West Chicago, who was originally charged with concealing a homicide, has been charged with first-degree murder.

    The four are suspected in the Aug. 13 slaying of 18-year-old Luis Guerrero of West Chicago, whose still smoldering body was found in a field in the 1300 block of Joliet Street in unincorporated Wheaton on Aug. 14.

    The chief of police said firefighters first noticed smoke while they were doing training in the area around noon.

    The DuPage County state?s attorney said at some point on Tuesday, Alvarado and Brewer arranged to meet Guerrero near the West Chicago Public Library. Officials said when they met, Alvarado approached Guerrero from behind and strangled him with a belt. At the same time, prosecutors said, Alvarado and Brewer stabbed Guerrero multiple times in his neck. Officials said the two then put Guerrero into their Jeep Cherokee, traveled to a location on Joliet Street and took him out of the car.

    That?s when the pair contacted Correa and asked him to bring gasoline, prosecutors said. When Correa arrived, according to officials, he gave the pair gas and left the scene. Officials said the suspects then poured gas on Guerrero?s body and lit him on fire.

    While he was on fire, officials said, Guerrero got up and started to run away. That?s when Alvarado and Brewer ran him over with their car. Officials said the two then dragged Guerrero back to the fire pit, re-lit him on fire and placed a picnic table over him.

    Authorities later found Brewer and Alvarado in a Chicago hotel with a blood-stained murder weapon. Officials said the suspects were planning to flee; both face the possibility of life without parole.

    Prosecutors said Brewer had dated Guerrero before Alvarado and told investigators Guerrero had sexually assaulted her. However, officials said she never lodged a complaint.
