Every day that I awakened, I begin reading news stories from all over the United States to find a story that is insane enough to post.
And everyday I read a story that makes me think, ‘It can’t get worst than this’.
But then I’ll run acroos a story that drops my jaw in utter shock.
Like this story here…
Meet Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins, both 22, from Joliet, Illinois.
These two friends have known each other for five years and have been friends since the day they met.
Glover graduated from Joliet Central High School and had made the honor roll and participated in football, wrestling and track, his family said.
Rankins, described as “a very outgoing, loving, fun person” by his mother, graduated from Joliet West High School.
But no one would’ve ever guessed that these two friends that could always be found together, would die together.
On Wednesday, January 9th, Rankin and Glover were hanging out together at Rankin’s home when they received a call from another group of friends.
The other group that was calling asked if Rankin and Glover could come over and hang out with them.
Around 7:15 p.m., Rankin and Glover went over to hang out with the group that consisted of Joshua Miner, 24; Alisa Massaro, 18; Bethany McKee, 18; and Adam Landerman, 19, whose mother is also a Joliet police sergeant.
But Rankin and Glover had no idea what diabolical plans were being hatched in their honor.
At Massaro’s house, the quartette lie in wait for their victims to arrive.
Rankins normally arrives by 11 p.m., his mother said. So, when he was not home that night, she tried to contact him.
“I texted first and said, ‘What time will you be here?’ ” Jamille Kent (Rankin’s mother) said. “When he didn’t answer my text, I called him. His phone rang once and went into voice mail.”
Kent said she kept calling her son because he typically called back. But her next calls went straight into voice mail with the phone not even ringing.
Worried about her son, Kent notified the police.
When police arrived at the house on Thursday, they noticed movement inside so they went in.
Landerman, Massaro and Miner were playing video games and were “very much surprised” when police came in.
McKee had left before police arrived but was picked up by authorities in Kankakee, police said.
Police are not sure yet of the how or why things ended the way they did, but one things for sure, Rankin and Glover were robbed and killed at that location.
Despite statements from authorities that the suspects had attempted to dismember the bodies, the Will County coroner confirmed Monday that the bodies were whole. Joliet Police Chief Mike Trafton has called the murders, “one of the most brutal, heinous and upsetting things I’ve ever seen in my 27 years of law enforcement.”
While the two victims were black and the four suspects are white, prosecutors say there is no information at this point that indicates race was a factor in the killings of Glover and Rankins.
They appeared in court Monday, and Circuit Court Judge Roger Rickmon upheld bail at $10 million. Their next court date is scheduled for Feb. 5.
