Howard Street Blocked Off & Murder North Of Howard

Lots of reports coming in on Twitter right now. Howard street is blocked off at Greenview, Ashland, probably at Marshfield/Paulina and now Rogers blocked off at Ashland.

WGN News van headed southwest on Rogers Avenue. Lots of police (Evanston and Chicago) and onlookers on scene. An ambulance for the decedent and any injured.

Ironic that another murder takes place in Willye B White park where a prayer vigil and shooting response for the July 5th murder of Elliot Frazier is being held tomorrow.

Update #1 from Northwestern Blog  - 7/15/13 2:25 pmThe Cook County medical examiner's office identified the man as Blake Lamb and said he was pronounced dead at 5:17 p.m (on 7/14/13) 

Update #2 from Chicago Tribune 7/15/13 5:00 pm - Blake Lamb was of the 7600 block of North Bosworth Avenue in Chicago.

(Neighborhood blogs benefit from tips and info from neighbors. Complaining about lack of info is entertaining but unhelpful. To be updated as new information comes in.)

Stanley I didn't see you and Willy at Wavefront. Were you that stoned again? Anyways this blog is getting so necromantic it's almost worse than the bromantic stuff with Craig and the other Jeff. Stop by some time. You have a key.

Can you pass the new Voight Kampff test Pris?

(For those ignorant check out the urban dictionary for the definition. An example sentence is below)

"The Voight-Kampff test proved conclusively that he was a replicant."

I might be slightly autistic but my memories are real and I know who the skin-jobs are in here, all of them.
