well, obviously the 2 friends were white too. If they were black, they would get the electric chair along with the honorable young Mr.Adamo, who should rightfully spend the rest of his evil life behind bars of titanium. He's probably rich too. Usually rich kids do heinous crimes such as these. And all three are drug addicts. If they were black, that would tack on an additional 5 years. So, moral of the story: if you are present and accountable for a murder, years later, tell on one person, live the rest of your life worry free.(if you're white of course)
You really don't know what you are talking about.

Harry why is everything gotta be racial?? Get you all just get along ? Race has nothing to do with it. Look how Many blacks and whites kill each other. Stop it or it just gets worse.

What are people still doing on this post? Louie is in prison until he is 65, the Conrad family got their "justice", the Adamo family has been bankrupted and devastated and Joe Birkett got that big promotion where he can now double-dip into our taxpayers' money to the tune of well over $300,000 per year. What more are you looking for? Why don't you do yourselves a favor and move on with your lives. How is re-capping how big of a piece of shit my brother and my family are over and over again for the last 3 years still appealing to people? And don't get your panties in a bunch wondering what is going on with his case. It is none of your concern. Don't you worry, he is not going anywhere anytime soon. I guess that there is not much to do in Bensenville or Lombard.
Dated Luigi Adamo

I dated this sociopath and can tell you first hand that there was no doubt in my mind that this was true the second I heard it. I know for a fact how deep his demonic issues go and how much his family will pay to cover this up. I feel for his family, but they will do anything to cover up this problem person in their life because that is what families do, especially families who have the level of money the Adamos claim to have. I will tell you this, it was not over the 8 dollars, it was over the power and control this psycho needs to drive his day to day living - this routes way way back to luigi's younger years - and his family has been covering up his sickening choices since then. Thinking about him and his ability to do something like this so easily makes my skin crawl and I will forever be ruined for having known him. 38 years is in no way enough time to keep this man in jail - he deserves life.

In response to his brother - your family has no doubt taken the brunt of the issue with Luigi's choices - and there is something to be said about families who do not cover up their loved ones crimes and support them through love and acceptance - but you do not need to go to bat for something that is so clearly true. Can you not say anything about his obsession with Nazi's? Or other tyrants in history? I know many people have interest, but he felt deeply the Nazi's were right to do what they did and had no problem sharing with everyone. All the money your parents poured into this young man - for what - 38 year sentence and when he gets out he will be a sharper and more dangerous criminal.

Hi
My aunt is very good friends with his mom Cookie. She is such a sweet and generous woman. You all have my deepest sympathy. I feel for what the family has to be going through right before Christmas. I think all of Louie's ex firends had a way bigger part in all of this. I wish you all the best and hope that he does get his appeal.

His mom cookie is very generous woman, to bad she is not paying any mortgages right now
