The homeowner then discovered the front window was broken out, and the suspect attempting to get in. He then reportedly struck the suspect with a crutch.
Police later arrived and found the 37-year-old male suspect laying about 15 feet in front of the home. He was conscious, but authorities say they could not understand him.
According to the Peoria County Coroner, the suspect suffered cardiac arrest on the way to the hospital.
He was pronounced dead at 11:13 p.m. at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center.
The name of the victim is being withheld until the next of kin is notified.
If you own or rent a home, and someone tries to break in through a window while you are sleeping, you have the right and duty to assume that said home invader will rape and murder the occupants. The last word I would use forf any potential rapist/murderer is “victim.”
In a deent and law-abiding society, the home-invaders head would be cut off and displayed in a pike in the victim’s front yard.
The only good home invader is a dead home invader.
I say sue the man’s estate for the cost of replacing the window.
