A guy supposedly killed his girlfriend or wife and was held up inside the duplex. Read the newspaper or just go to the bar.

Thanks for the wise ass comments . I was asked to leave the area my house sits on because of the closeness to the action. It was happening literally less than 150 yds from my front door.
Domestic fight ends in fatality

COAL CITY -- A domestic disturbance call Sunday afternoon turned into a murder investigation when police found the body of Valerie Harris, 46, late of Coal City.

Her husband, Michael Harris, 49, was arrested and is being held in the Grundy County jail awaiting a bond hearing Tuesday morning. According to a written release from Coal City police, the Grundy County State's Attorney's officer will charge Michael Harris with first-degree murder at his bond hearing.

Details about how Valerie Harris died were not available Sunday night. Grundy County Chief Deputy Corner Phyliss Dralle said an autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday at which time the coroner will determine the cause of death.

Numerous agencies assisted in the call, which came in at 2:12 p.m., including Coal City police, Grundy County Sheriff's police and Will County Sheriff's police, but Coal City police department is taking the lead on the investigation. Coal City Mayor Jim Micetich said police from Morris, Braidwood, Grundy County and Will County were called in as well, mostly as a precaution.

Police declined to say what street the couple lived on, but Village Administrator Leo Middleton said the incident happened on East Fourth Street. Micetich said it was near a pizza restaurant just off Illinois 113.

Micetich said he received word about the incident from Middleton.

"I guess the police had been called there before for domestic argument," Micetich said. "But I don't know about the frequency."

Micetich said violence of this kind in the village is rare.

"It's extremely rare. Coal City is not that type of community to have such a violent crime. It's just very tragic. Very sad," Micetich said.

Both Middleton and Micetich said Harris was arrested without any injury to any of the police officers.

I feel so sorry for the families and then have an Administrator act like a gossip. The Mayor also is a gossip. Who wants these twerps talking about people's private lives. If they are reading police reports and giving us that information they need to be arrested. I think both families should hire an attorney and sue these gossips for all they have.

This was one of my good friends.. But thanks to another Drunk m..f.. My good friend was held hostage and shot point blank in the face. She has two sons and three grandkids.. I have known Valerie for 15 years I worked with her for Amoco Corporation in which she was educated by me "Peg" to be an "Outstanding" manager of several Amoco gas stations in Westmont, Hinsdale and Bolingbrook.
My mother Dale and Val were the best of friends as they worked together for years for Amoco Oil. Val recently visited my mother who was bed ridden and in the end stages of "Emphysemia" for all of you who smoke. She was shocked by my mothers appeareance ..She was also at my mothers memorial on Oct 7th .. In which I met this m..f.., I told him to take care of my mothers good friend..So If any of you have any questions.. Guess What ..
Dont Drink...In all of my family and freinds this is the first. She was shot point blank in the face while being held hostage.. So for all you judgemental bfsb's Valerie Dean was the sweetest person never hurt anybody. Only GOD can hold her in his right hand now WRITE ME!! her very good friend peg [email protected]
