Second Chicago Police Officer Dies from Coronavirus COVID-19 — Detective from Area Central Bureau of Detectives

The Chicago Police Department on Friday, April 10, 2020 announced that a second Chicago police officer died from Coronavirus COVID-19. The police officer was a sergeant in the Area Central Detective Division. His identity was not initially released.

The news was released one day after the private burial service for Officer Marco Di Franco, 50, who was laid to rest Thursday, April 9, 2020 in a private burial service after he suffered a Line of Duty Death. Di Franco became ill in late March and died shortly after midnight on Thursday, April 2, 2020.

I am saddened to share the devastating news that a second Department member passed away today from complications of the COVID-19 virus.

We are still working to inform extended family members and more information will be released as soon as possible. We can confirm this is a sworn member who worked in the Area Central Bureau of Detectives.

— Interim CPD Supt. Charlie Beck
