Former Cook County Official, Found Dead in SW Michigan
(wgvu) - The godson and one-time top aide to a
Chicago-area politician has been found dead amid scrutiny of his
possible involvement in an alleged Las Vegas kickback scheme.
The body of 52-year-old Orlando Jones was found yesterday on a
beach in the town of Union Pier in southwestern Michigan.
Berrien County (Michigan) Undersheriff Chuck Heit says Jones
appeared to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. An
autopsy was planned.
Jones had worked for John Stroger, former president of the Cook
County (Illinois) Board.
Jones had been under criminal investigation by Las Vegas
authorities, but no charges have been filed.
