CHICAGO (CBS) — The body of Luis Guerrero was found by firefighters conducting a training exercise in West Chicago Tuesday. The body was found strangled, stabbed, lit on fire, and then run over with a Jeep.

CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar reports the horrific final moments for a Chicago teen, police say, killed by peers his own age. Friends of Guerrero say he moved to West Chicago from Mexico in fifth grade. They describe him as a good friend and student.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I’m extremely sad to know that he had to suffer so much because he was burned alive,” said Jose Ramirez, a friend of Guerrero.

Police say 18-year-old Francisco Alvarado and 16-year-old Tia Brewer, a former girlfriend, met the victim at the library where the pair allegedly strangled Guerrero with a belt, stabbed him several times in the neck, and then drove him to the field. Jesus Correa was also charged.

“I was honestly completely shocked. I couldn’t stop shaking,” Ramirez said when he found out what happened to his friend.

Investigators say Guerrero was doused in gasoline, provided by Correa, and set on fire. In a struggle for his life, Guerrero tried running away, but Alvarado and Brewer allegedly ran him over in a Jeep Cherokee, returning Guerrero to the fire pit, under a bench, and once again igniting his body on fire.

  1. More people of ‘colour” being tragically killed by, who?, other people of colour. This is so sad, the problem stems from within and needs to be addressed at that level.

  2. This is truly a horrible incident. The violence in Chicago is not just dependent of having a gun, this situation shows a knife, gasoline, and a vehicle can be just as effective. The violence in Chicago can not be stopped by the police or the National Guard, as long as the citizens let this go on. The people in these neighborhoods must get involved, not with bats, shovels or guns, but with their eyes, ears, and mouths. Either way, it will not be easy.
