As a public service, we are listing local characters to bring awareness the problem of unsolved crimes and of homelessness in Des Plaines.

Walkin Willy was one. I Haven't seen him in a long time. Picked through peoples garbage, long before awareness of identity theft, and a treasure of info nestled in peoples trash. Single-handedly brought about the everyday use of document shredders.

The shirtless big blond-headed knucklehead who used to hang out at the Metra station. Also, haven't seen him in years.

Veronica (present). Overheard another local knucklehead nearly urinate all over himself when told she was spotted recently in Des Plaines.

Any others?
Love to hear your stories.

The (Black)bag lady with her 5-10 bags. Mumbles and sputters nonsense and rides the buses. She has been overheard in the past about being a nurse. Once a nurse, always a nurse .... unless there is a big problem.... I guess there must be a big problem.
