In super-sad news, two bodies pulled from a car that crashed into DuSable Harbor in Chicago over the weekend were identified by police as lifelong best friends.
According to the Chicago Tribune, “The Cook County medical examiner’s office confirmed the identities of Antonio Lemon, 21, of the 8600 block of Fullerton in River Grove, and Joseph Ramos, 22, of the 2900 block of Ruby Street in Franklin Park. Autopsies will likely be done Wednesday, the office said.”
Lemon and Ramos were last seen leaving the nightclub in the 200 block of West Ontario Street early Sunday. Their car was discovered around 3:15 a.m. Tuesday after Area North detectives investigating the missing persons case discovered a cellphone pinging to the 100 block of North Lake Shore Drive. Police camera footage showed a car going into Lake Michigan, police said.
The bodies were recovered shortly after 9 a.m., and the car was lifted out of the water around 10 a.m.
