CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Three teens have been accused of being connected to a crime that involved stabbing another male teen, strangling him, setting him on fire, and running him over with a vehicle.

On Thursday August 16, 2018 DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said Tia Brewer, 16, and Franciso Alvarado, met with the victim, Luis Guerrero, 18, near the West Chicago Library and stabbed and strangled Guerrero. Tia Brewer is reported to be the victim’s ex-girlfriend.

Francisco Alvarado and Tia Brewer then took Guerrero to a field and set him on fire, according to Berlin. Guerrero tried to escape by running away, but Alvarado and Brewer ran him over in their car, according to prosecutors.

Berlin said Jesus Correa, 18, was asked to provide gasoline used to set the victim on fire. Correa observed the body in the fire pit when he got to the scene and later saw the fire pit go up in flames, Berlin said.

“The facts alleged are brutal and heinous and evidence of an unconscionable degree of depravity,” Berlin said.

FIRST DEGREE MURDER …
Francisco Alvarado and Tia Brewer were both charged with first degree murder, armed robbery and concealment of a homicidal death. In a court appearance Thursday, both were denied bail.

CONCEALMENT OF HOMICIDAL DEATH …
Jesus Correa was charged with concealment of a homicidal death. His bond was set at $100,000.

Guerrero’s body was discovered at about noon on Tuesday in the block of 1300 Joliet Street, just south of Route 38, after firefighters on a training drill noticed a column of smoke. Later, the parents of one of the suspects who lives near the field reported blood discovered on their Jeep, according to police.

After police interviewed Correa, he directed police to a motel in Chicago, where they located Alvarado and Brewer. Berlin said the suspects possessed the victim’s bloody backpack which contained a bloody knife and screwdriver. All were found in the motel room.

Police said that the victim had been in a dating relationship with Brewer and that Brewer is currently dating Alvarado. Police said Brewer and Alvarado planned the murder because Brewer accussed Guerrero of rapig her when they previously dated.

“They’ve not located any reports of a complaint of any sexual assault or rape,” Berlin said.

According to prosecutors, an autopsy found that Guerrero had been stabbed more than a dozen times, strangled and shows signs of blunt force injuries consistent with being run over by a car.
