CRIME, two homicides in Maywood [M]

Chicago Tribune:
On Wednesday Justin Jobgen, 23, and Joshua Serpliss, 21, were found in a parked car in front of an office building at 1st Avenue and the Eisenhower Expressway.

Doesn't 8-10 weeks seem like a long time to get the toxicology test results?

Does anybody have details on the case?


  • They are not considered homicides by the medical examiner's office.

  • Very sorry story, two kids from Galena Il. They got of the Eisenhower to shoot heroin and appearently had an overdose. They has past history of drug use and appearently had just gotten out of rehab. Using the same dosage after rehab usually leads towards an overdose and thats what appearently happen here.

  • Two people ODing together?

    I'm thinking they got some bad drugs. Will the drug dealing chamber of commerce or trade association object to me writing this?

  • The third post was correct. There were no street drugs found in the systems of Josh and Justin. Most likely it was a hot shot.

  • Journal Standard (Gary Mays) wrote:

    The men died from what police suspect “was some bad stuff.” Police said their deaths came shortly after buying the drugs and driving a short distance to use. Paramedics were called to the scene and tried to revive the men, police said. Reportedly, there was no sign of a struggle or violence.

    “They went to Chicago, on the west side, and picked up some heroin,” said Pirsia Allen, a Maywood police spokesman. “They got off the expressway (in Maywood). They stopped to get high.”

    At the time of his death in Chicago, according to court records, Serpliss was out on bail awaiting trial on two felony and two misdemeanor drug charges in Jo Daviess County. He apparently had missed a Jan. 18 court appearance. Though records indicate he also was on probation for a 2005 misdemeanor driving under the influence conviction, no arrest warrant was issued for Serpliss at that time, and a new hearing date on the separate drug offenses was set for Feb. 9.

  • The Chicago Suntimes did a story on it for today, it seems to be more than just them were involved in this "bad heroine" story.

  • it was not a hot shot. they had been clean for a while and when they shot up they did too much and just happened to get an extremely pure batch of dope unfortunately. They are not homicides it was an accidental death. They were both very good friends of mine and i have been in contact with the maywood police department the whole time the investigation was going on. So if you are using and decide to quit for a while just remember your tolerance level goes way down and your body cant handle it.I hope this will end all the rumors and they may now rest in peace. I know they will missed dearly by all.
