Arturo did not rip these guys off. It was a set up. but I heard from Gilzene's lawyer that Sean Wilkins pretty much confessed to being the trigger man in this murder.???
These cowards kidnapped Arturo at gunpoint, drove him to Park Ridge and killed him and left him face down in the back seat of his own car with a bullet in his head. This is not a conspiracy against Bryan or Sean - only against Arturo. RIP. Arturo Cedillo April 2005. You only died for the life you were trying to lead. It is so sad to me because you were so young, but hard to be sorry because you made your own choices.

I testified in that trial- Bryan's lawyer's thought I would do so in their favor, then the prosecutor brought up an old detail I had long forgotten about (the trial was years later) and then iot just came rught back in Bryan's lap. I miss you too Arturo! I wish I could see your girlfriend to give her my best, but eberyone just disappeared after that took place. I never got to say good bye to anyone! America (Jose)- I especially wanted to see you once more. to say thank you. for everything.

I aam sorry for the loss of Arturo, truly I am, but Bryan is innocent. Shame on all of you, not money and certainly not drugs are worth taking the life of anyone, no matter who did the killing.

The park ridge police have a picture of Arturo in the back seat of his own car, after the fact. Maybe u can ask them for a copy. Otherwise his GF at the time would be the one to ask, if u can locate her. Glad to see Bryan got a good sentence. Too bad Sean didn't get the same. He was the same sh!t as Bryan.
