I worked with Ari and Denise. at forest hospital in Des Plaines.
Ari released me from my job in the early 90's. He was not well liked then. His father Morris B Squire owner the psychiatric hospital. Morris was later caught for fraud on medicare. Father Smith from maryville now owns the hospital.
Denise was not liked very well.either
Don't know how Margo is doing. that is Ari's sister.I just hope Margo is not involved. Margo was well liked.

This guy must have been nuts.

How could you possibly think of getting away with this?
His wife had to be in on this she will go to prison

At least he killed himself so the taxpayers are not stuck with keeping him locked up for life

To bad for young man he murdered poor guy just trying to get out of home depot.

I, too, worked at Forest Hospital in Des Plaines a LONG time ago. Where did you work? Which Denise did he marry? Not from reception/switchboard/admissio ns was she? When I worked there he was dating his father's (Morris) secretary. She was a pretty blonde girl. I remember that him & his father were NOT friendly people!

Denise is a wh*re who should pay dearly for this travesty. I know the Squire family well and there is no doubt in my mind that Morris, Denise and countless others are involved in this sickening murder. I hope Justin rests in peace and Denise dies a slow painful death... never to feel the heat of hell or the comfort of heaven.

I can't tell you how my family is coping with this, Justin was my beloved baby cousin and died tragically and was robbed of his life. I just want eveyone to know that there is a web site in his name to send condolences to and donate for his memorial, Justinnewman.legacy.com , If you could take a minute to visit this site it would be much appreciated

I too worked at Forest Hospital in the early 70's and knew Morris Squire quite well. Although he might have mellowed with age, at the time he was a self-inflated narcissist who would occasionally physically and psychologically abuse his patients. One time in particular he went up to a struggling paranoid schizophrenic and (without reason) punched him in the stomach. He then looked at me and said, "Deal with it!". So if he and/or his family are caught up in some kind of legal battle, I can certainly understand why.

So you hate your father. Have a little empathy for the rest of the family and keep your bile to yourself.
Just found this Melvin. You have the wrong person. There are many in this world with the first name Valerie. Morris' daughter with that name never worked for him in any capacity.

This case was on Investigative Discovery Channel last year. He lures this developmentally learning disabled young male into his home to commit this haughty and greedy crime.

I was disgusted. The young man was a decent citizen and was very friendly. This Ari and his wife (wife knew the plan) based on the program, they had not arrested the wife for lack of direct evidence (unless this has been updated).

She certainly knew of the plot before hand because she actually met the young. What asick twisted trap to offer a job and murder the innocent for desiring to be a hard worker.

Please be aware of ANY scams involving "jobs" at another person's home. ALways MEET in a PUBLIC area first and investigate all job offerings made by the seeker before driving to their home. The wife was very aware or was she mislead by Ari as well?
