Chicago: There are reasons to believe that the last weeks’ murder of Cornell-Duranleau here in Chicago is very close to be solved. Authorities claim that murder warrants have been issued for a Northwestern professor and an Oxford employee in stabbing to death of a 26-year old youth.
A judge at the Cook County court has reportedly issued first-degree murder warrant for 42-year-old Wyndam Lathem and 56-year-old Andrew Warren. While Wyndam Lathem is an associate professor of microbiology and immunology at Northwestern, Andrew Warren is reported to be a senior treasury assistant at the University of Oxford’s Somerville College.
Police have asked the people to be cautious of the two as both have been described to be armed and dangerous. Reports claim that the two men are wanted for the death of 26-year-old man, who was found stabbed to death in an apartment in the Grand Plaza Apartments at 540 N. State St. at 8:30 p.m. Thursday.
Officials claim that Cornell-Duranleau, a Pilsen neighborhood resident, was pronounced dead at the scene at 9:05 p.m.. An autopsy Thursday found he died of multiple sharp force injuries and his death was ruled a homicide. In the meantime, anyone with information about their whereabouts is asked to call Area Central detectives at (312) 747-8380.
