I heard that it was a suicide. I heard they don't want anyone to know.

There was never a tribute to honor him or anything. Just because it was a suicide they should have put his name on the Marquis at the Village and the Fire Dept's it just goes to show you how this town is run

I was there the other day. And was told the Officer was going threw a bitter divorce. They also said he had a Citizens Complaint against him because he bothered someone.

A Palos Heights police officer was found dead at Lake Katherine nature center early Monday morning, police said.

A person walking around Lake Katherine called police at about 7 a.m. after observing the officer dead inside his squad car, Deputy Chief William Czajkowski said on Tuesday.

Andrew W. Ritz was a 12-year veteran of the Palos Heights Police Department. The matter “is being treated as a death investigation,” Czajkowski said.

Palos Heights is not a safe community anymore. It is a declining community and this poor officer was probably killed by one of the many arab or african american perps infiltrating the area. This could have been the same guy who committed the TJ Grinders rape. Someone should investigate.

I don't usually speak so rudely, but you are an absolute idiot! First of all, the officer took his own life, an "arab" or "African American"did not take it from him. He was a fine officer, with many supporters in the community. His death is a great loss for those who knew him. As for the TJ Grinders Rape, get with the program, read the news.....It turned out to be a false report perpetrated by a troubled young girl. Have a heart!

I live in an area that IS declining! Crime is everywhere, being committed by people from all walks of life. If you live in Palos Heights, be grateful! Your town is still relatively safe, except for the hate mongers like yourself!

RIP Andy!

She did it because the owner fired her boyfriend it was not a cry for attention she wanted his business to decline. It eventually did so there was no need for her to do that,

Wow...I didn't know that about the TJ Grinders thing. I though she was just looking for attention. They should have charged them both with felony filing of a false police report
