Three indicted in death of Elburn resident
A Kane County grand jury on Jan. 13 indicted three people in connection with the 2007 death of an Elburn man who was found in a west side Chicago alley.
The grand jury indicted:
â€¢ Jordan D. Billek, 18, of the 8N block of Grand Arbor Lane, Maple Park, on one count of obstructing justice, a Class 4 felony
â€¢ Lindsey Parker, 23, of the 4000 block of Royal Fox Drive, St. Charles, on one count of obstructing justice, a Class 4 felony
â€¢ Nathan L. Green, 22, of the 20900 block of Oak Lane, Maple Park, on one count of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, a Class 2 felony, and one count of obstructing justice, a Class 4 felony
After the indictment, a judge issued warrants for the arrest of Billek, Parker and Green, and set Billekâ€™s bail at $20,000, Parkerâ€™s bail at $5,000 and Greenâ€™s bail at $100,000.
On Jan. 21, Billek surrendered at the Kane County Sheriffâ€™s Department, posted $2,000 bond, and was processed at the St. Charles Police Department and released. His initial court appearance was set for 9 a.m. Feb. 10, in Courtroom 305 in front of Associate Judge Allen M. Anderson.
On Thursday, Jan. 22, Green was taken into custody by Kane County Sheriffâ€™s deputies in Chicago. He was held overnight at the St. Charles Police Department and appeared for bond call the following morning. His initial court appearance was set for 9 a.m., Jan. 30, in Courtroom 305 in front of Judge Gallagher. Green remains in custody at the Kane County Jail.
Parker surrendered to authorities at the St. Charles Police Department, posted $500 bond and was released. Her initial court appearance was set for 9 a.m. Jan. 30, in Courtroom 305 in front of Judge Gallagher.
The Kane County Stateâ€™s Attorneyâ€™s Office alleges that the weekend of Dec. 14, 2007, Billek, Parker, Green and 17-year-old Michael York of Elburn were together at Parkerâ€™s St. Charles home. York injected heroin supplied by Green, and later lost consciousness and died.
In the mid morning hours of Dec. 16, Parker discovered York deceased in a guest bedroom. After Parker, Green and Billek discussed how to remove Yorkâ€™s body from Parkerâ€™s home, Billek and Green drove York to Chicago and abandoned his body in an alley on the city’s west side. No one called 911.
Yorkâ€™s body was discovered by a passerby, who called Chicago police. The autopsy was performed by the Cook County Medical Examinerâ€™s Office. Authorities were unable to determine a cause of death, which is why no one at this time has been directly charged with Yorkâ€™s death.
The case remains under investigation. Anyone with information should call St. Charles Police Sgt. Jerry Gatlin at the Department at (630) 443-3739.
The charges against Billek, Green and Parker are not proof of guilt. A defendant charged is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the stateâ€™s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
