On Wednesday morning, firefighters responded to a reported vehicle fire and discovered a body inside after putting out the fire. Identified from dental records, that victim was Raymond Cross III, 60, of the 700 block of Greenview Place, Lake Forest.

Keller said Cross died of carbon monoxide poisoning and that the case was ruled a suicide. Keller said it looked like Cross set his vehicle on fire.

The parking lot he was found in was for my moms work, and I happened to have been with her that day. One of the cops on the case was a family friend, so he didn't exactly send us home. I also got the details from him.
The car caught on fire from a cigarette Cross had been supposedly smoking. I'm not a professional when it comes to crime diagnosis, but this didn't look like a suicide, even though that's what we were told it was. The friend, who I mentioned earlier, and I did have a conversation on how it could have been an accident, or a homicide since his car was unlocked.
