Evanston police were called out to a field near a middle school after a man walking his dog this morning discovered a decapitated body there.
Police have pushed the media back from the area after discovering what appears to be an explosive device near the body, WGN-Ch. 9 reported about 8:40 a.m. Some residents were being evacuated from their homes. The Cook County sheriff's bomb squad was on the scene.

Thanks for all the info. Perhaps this is another Gore/Globull Warming inspired eco-nut.
With the possibility of a second device I think of two scenarios
1. Terrorist planting bombs were kids will find them, but he makes a mistake and blows himself up.
2. Somebody else planted the devices and this guy found one and it blew up when he opened it.
Not good either way.
Thanks for the info. We’re about 40 minutes away from this area. And we are out walking our dogs at 5:45 every morning on our way to Mass. Not a discovery I would ever want to make. Glad it wasn’t the middle school kids that saw this ...
I thought pretty much every square inch of the planetary surface was a viable islamic bombing target.
These days it's mostly the non islamic parts that get bombed, but should they -God forbid!- succeed in taking over the world and killing or converting its entire population to islam, they will fall upon each other for 'not being islamic enough'.
Murder in the name of their pig-god is all they really know, the only thing they are good at, and the only thing for which they have any real enthusiasm.
” These idiots in Illinois wouldnt know the difference between gunpowder and baking powder.”
yes they would, after sniffing up their nose for an hour they would figure it out
...or (prayer) rug?
gunpowder up the nose? Dear God that would be painful!
The amazing part is that ALL of one’s direct ancestors managed to survive to at least the age of procreation. What are the odds of that?
My boyfriend's best friend in high school used to make bombs back in the 70's, we'd blow stuff up in a field. He also had a bad habit of pocketing everyone's lighters, so I teased him about being a "pyro-cleptic" ; )
Leftwingtards sometimes make the rather remarkable argument that since blackpowder was the only explosive "gunpowder" known at the time of the adoption of the Bill of Rights, the First Amendment should only apply to firearms or other weapons that use blackpowder.
Their thought is that blackpowder was safer ~ yet, there's a guy with his head blown clean off!
So much for liberal myths.
My guess would be PhiKapMom
In Israel they call it a
Yes, I think that’s right. Was she pinged to this? I don’t think I have seen her around in ages, but I admit I don’t always pay attention to people’s names, so I may have Freeped with her yesterday for all I know.
Thanks for the info.
Life insurance premiums in Gaza are a real bitch.
I sent a message to PhiKapMom.
” Was she pinged to this? “
First thing I did when I saw that there were ‘eerie similarities’ between OU and this.....
I have the same afflictions. I don't recall seeing a post from PhiKapMom in years. She was one of many who departed in a snit/purge or whatever about 3 years ago. But from before then, I recall her being very active in Oklahoma politics.
Thanks Uncle Ike! I’m a little spacey this morning. As all mornings. Well, and it’s noon, time to get my act together! :)
I guess I missed the snit/purge. I miss so much stuff...
” I don’t recall seeing a post from PhiKapMom in years. “
According to her posting history, she last posted on Aug 29, 2010 —
She’s still around... ;)
Well, there you go. I am obviously not up on things. No wonder no one takes me seriously! :)
That would be my guess.....he was kneeling on the ground, putting his bomb together, bent low to examine things, and....boom.
But what was his target? The school? Tennis players?
Yes - the liberal argument that the Constitution is a living document except for the 2nd Amendment. Then, and only then, should the Constitution be kept within its time.
Hypocrisy, thy name is liberal.
Jan Schakowsky’s (D) district, one of the more radical members of Congress. Some folks insist her husband, while in prison, wrote the script for the Obama rise and election.
When the district lines were redrawn in 2000, I went from Henry Hyde’s very conservative district to the radical-chic 9th district without ever moving.
It’s been some 6 hours since the ‘discovery’ of the body, and *still* no “Terrorism Not Suspected (pat. pend)” statement from the FBI....
Usually, they’re out with the obligatory statement within seconds...
That's exactly what happened with the explosive collar on the pizza guy a few years ago. That one happened in Michigan, I believe.
So, that leads me to believe it’s really NOT terrorism, so, they want our imaginations to run wild! ;)
An explosive collar makes more sense than a suicide vest in such a circumstance. But the pizza guy’s device was pretty obvious to all who could see him. Such a collar could not be concealed like a vest under a jacket.
I think the pizza guy was in upstate New York.
This sounds like the work of those.. Amish!
Posters coming and going is part of the inevitable friction. This site has seen times that provided a few "opus" posts each week.
The mass separation that I had in mind involved the formation of a website, "WideAwakes." IIRC, the friction point was Rudy Giuliani.
Happy to read your report that PhiKapMom is still posting here. And, FWIW, from what I read into her personality from her posting style, I would not expect any sort of "snit" departure from her.
I heard about this on the radio on the way in to work. Radio reported residents in the area being awaken by a 4am explosion. Then at 5am, the headless body is found by a man walking his dog. Curious, to say the least.
Yes, I recall some Freepmail conversations with her and she seemed normal. ;) But I know sometimes I get a little ruffled by things people post to me and I take a few days off. I don’t generally announce it tho. I just let the dust settle. Mostly so I don’t go post something I’ll later regret that makes me look like a total idiot. I’d rather let the other person look like one. :)
The really amazing thing is the number of people who seriously considered what it would take to calculate those odds.
The additional info from the radio was that there was a second “controlled explosion” of an item near the headless body. Also reported that body was a male and likely older than 30 years old.
” The additional info from the radio “
Thanks for the updated information - there would seem to be some kind of Media Blackout going on, so we’ll take anything we can get from ‘alternate sources’.... ;)
I'm listening to Rush and I get the WLS radio news every half hour....and absolutely no new details are being reported.
Anything new, I'll report it here immediately.
” and absolutely no new details are being reported. “
Another aspect of this incident that is eerily reminiscent of the OU Bombing 5 years ago...
I remember reading upthread that there was supposed to be a press conference about this earlier this morning - and not a peep about it, since...
Sorry - the ‘suicide by bomb’ theory just ain’t doing anything for me....
There are way too many “Dogs That Didn’t Bark” in this story for comfort.. Where’s the BATFE (which magically appaears whenever an ‘explosive device’ goes off); where’s the FBI (with their patented ‘Terrorism Not Suspected’ assertions); where’s the Department of Homeland Security (basically useless, but always eager to get ‘camera time’)???
Speaking of ‘camera time’, where are the cameras, talking-heads, ‘experts’, and all the other panoply of ‘usual suspects’ that should be infesting the airwaves in a story like this???
Something stinks, here.....
I’m not buying suicide. Why would he have 2 pipe bombs? The second device was found intact.
“Evanston Police Cmdr. Tom Guenther said that police responded again after the body was found and discovered another explosive device nearby. Some residents were asked to leave their homes, he said.
Later Tuesday morning, a Cook County bomb squad dentonated the device.”

I live over a half mile from the scene and was woken by the explosion, so am perplexed that any part of his body remains. Also, I ran across a bomb-squad detective dusting for prints on the door of a frozen yogurt shop then entering near Davis St Metra station on Church St in Evanston at 8:30am this morning, assume some relationship exists.
Plus, if the few details we've got are true, and it was a premature or premeditated explosion, how does one explain the unexploded bomb found nearby?
BTW, there is a middle school nearby where the Decap's body was found. The school has been shut down for the day.
2 PM (central) radio update on this event....nothing, nada, non, nein, nyet, zero, zip, zilch.
