REMEMBER, all behavior here is alleged, and all are considered innocent until proven guilty.

That being said, the Park Forest Police Department stayed with this one.

There aren’t many homicides in Park Forest, after all. Each one means businesses.


The Park Forest Police Department announced this week two more arrests in connection with the fatal shooting of Park Forest resident, Adam Martinez.

Park Forest Police say the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office approved charges of first degree murder against 17-year-old Jabriel Anderson of Park Forest and 20-year-old Corey Anderson of Richton Park in connection with the death of Martinez.

Both were scheduled to appear in Room 104 of the Sixth District Court in Markham on Friday, September 3, for the purposes of a bond hearing.

Park Forest Detectives, in conjunction with members of the South Suburban Major Crime Task Force, continued working on leads from the May 12 homicide, in which Jason Burns was charged on May 18 with First- Degree Murder.

Congrations to the Park Forest Police Department, and our sympathies, once again, to the famliy of Adam Martinez.

And we hope, beyond hope, that these two arrested had no idea what was about to transpire when they allegedly did what they allegedly did.
