Benjamin West, 59

Right in public view, at a playground at Fosco Park in the CHA complex at 1338 West Hastings Street, 59-year-old Benjamin West was found stripped naked and beaten to death just before 6:30 a.m. on the morning of January 4th. A family representative says West was basically homeless. An Illinois court report shows West had a drug possession record, but nothing indicating any violence.
