CRIME, Brookfield man executed in Cicero

Suburban Life (Megan Brody)
A 35-year-old ex-Marine was shot by a masked gunman in an execution-style murder in a Cicero tavern at about 6:30 p.m. New Year's Day. The assailant fled after firing five shots at Brookfield resident David Sauseda Jr., said Dan Proft, Cicero spokesman. Sauseda was hit in the back and head as he relaxed at It's About Time, 3147 S. 53rd Court. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

"It was someone he knew. It was too personal," said Melissa Sauseda, the victim's 29-year-old sister. "He wasn't perfect. We know it was meant for him, but we don't know why or who exactly."

I see.
"It is hard to say if the individual was acting alone or part of an effort including other people," Proft said, adding police have no reason to believe the murder is related to street gangs or organized crime.

No reason other than it was an execution? In Cicero?
David Sauseda Jr. joined the Marines after graduating from Cicero's J. Sterling Morton East High School in 1989, where he played football for four years. A large group of friends enlisted together, many returning to work in Cicero's Police Department, his sister said.

Friends in the Cicero Police Department?

If the Mafia did have someone hit in Cicero, would the Cicero Police say the Mafia was suspected?
