Des Plaines police discovered a man covered with what appeared to be blood about 10:43 p.m., Monday, April 23, 2012 near the intersection of Campbell Avenue and Center Street.
Police investigated the man and identified him as Andrew R. Frame, 35, of the 1400 block of East Campbell Avenue in Des Plaines. Frame appeared to be under the influence of drugs and was transported to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. Frame told police he was fighting with someone at his home and that he believed there was someone murdered in his home.
Police forcibly entered Frames home, and did not find a body, but immediately discovered illegal drugs and a drug manufacturing lab. Police initially suspected they discovered cocaine on a table, and a methamphetamine and ecstasy lab in the basement. Drug paraphernalia was also discovered. The house was immediately secured because of safety hazard and fire hazards related to the lab. The Illinois State Police Meth Response Team was called to investigate the crime scene at the house.
Andrew R. Frame is charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and multiple counts of manufacturing illicit drugs. Additional charges are expected, but no murder is suspected to have occurred in the home.
