Last week, a dead body was found in pieces in a garage, and it was presumed to be that of a missing Hegewisch man. Now, it's reported that the missing Hegewisch man's remains have been found in Fowler, Indiana. The mystery doesn't end there. There is the missing mother-in-law (now found dead too presumably OR is that the Hegewisch man's body), the dead daughter, and of course - the corpse in the Hegewisch garage. Who is that?

Dismembered body tentatively ID'd as man missing from Hegewisch
Dismembered remains found on the Southeast Side over the weekend appear to be the body of a man reported missing more than a year ago, but it's unclear whether his death is connected to the disappearance of his mother-in-law in Indiana last month, officials said Monday.
The body has been tentatively identified as Milan Lekich, 51. It was found wrapped in sheets or blankets and placed in a garbage can inside the garage of the Hegewisch home where Lekich had lived in the 1300 block of Avenue M, according to sources with knowledge of the investigation.

Body of Fla. woman found buried at daughter's Indiana home
The remains were found at Nena Metoyer's house in the 500-block of East Fifth Street in Fowler, police said. Metoyer is the mother-in-law of Lekich.
Lekich disappeared more than a year ago from Chicago's Hegewisch neighborhood and was last seen at Metoyer's house, police said.
Lekich's wife was found dying in her Fowler home last month, which is when police noted her mother, Metoyer, was missing.
The cause of Lekich's death is still under investigation.
