Joliet Authorities: 4 Young Adults Rob, Murder 2 Friends, Then Continue ‘Party Atmosphere’ - One of the offenders is the son of a Police Sergeant
JOLIET, IL - Police say four young adults — one the son of a Joliet police sergeant — lured two friends to a house robbing them and strangling them to death.
After the murders, the suspects “continued the party atmosphere” even after attempting to dismember the bodies until being surprised when police arrived, Joliet police Chief Mike Trafton said.
“This is one of the most brutal, heinous and upsetting things I’ve ever seen in my 27 years of law enforcement,” Trafton said Friday. “Not only the crime scene, but the disregard for common decency toward human beings.”
Adam M. Landerman, 19; Alisa R. Massaro, 18; Bethany L. McKee, 18; and Joshua F. Miner, 24, were charged around 4 p.m. Friday with six counts of first-degree murder for the Thursday deaths of Eric Glover, 22, and Terrence O. Rankins, 22.
All four suspects are being held in lieu $10 million bond.
Around 4 p.m. Thursday, police were notified about two dead bodies in Massaro’s house at 1121 N. Hickory St. in Joliet.
When officers arrived they noticed movement inside the house so they went in, Trafton said.
