Crystal Lake Police Charge Two Men with Drug Induced Homicide

A press release from the Crystal Lake Police Department:

Two Men Charged with Drug Induced Homicide

John Galloway

On May 18, 2017, Crystal Lake Police responded to a home located in the 1700 block of Nashville Lane for a report of an unresponsive male located within the residence.

Officers arriving on scene determined the male, twenty years of age, was deceased.

Items observed in plain view located within close proximity to the deceased aroused suspicion that illegal drug use was involved in his death.

Crystal Lake detectives, in coordination with the McHenry County Coroner’s Office, immediately initiated a complex and thorough criminal investigation that spanned over seven weeks, conducting several interviews and exploring numerous leads.

The Crystal Lake detectives’ persistent approach to this investigation uncovered that a controlled substance, heroin, was delivered to the deceased just prior to his death and was later determined by the Coroner’s Office to be the cause of death.

On July 7, 2017, Crystal Lake detectives obtained arrest warrants for two adult males. Both men were already incarcerated on unrelated charges and were served with the following warrants/charges while in custody:

John H. Galloway (18) – 1725 Hartford Lane, Crystal Lake, IL

  • Unlawful Delivery of a Controlled Substance – (Class 1 Felony)

  • Unlawful Delivery of a Controlled Substance – (Class 1 Felony)

Currently confined at the Cook County Jail in lieu of one million dollars bond.

  1. He’s gonna be once he takes up residency at the Gray Bar Hotel.

    Dancing with the Devil is a sure way to ruin your life.

  2. To the hundreds of millions of readers of this extraordinary sunshine blog: Have you noticed here a slightly different tone in the comments compared to stories in which the arrested are Latino? Quoting our idol Rush, “I’m just saying.” I hereby propose the nomination of our own McHenry county hot felon to the cyberworld. Hey, at least rural McHenry county may be famous for something…tic, tock, tic, tock…

  3. Angel, you are an idiot. How do you know they are NOT Spanish heritage? It happens all the time. My husband was accused of being white. Makes us angry that you want to divide over nothing. Try something else, Angel. It’s not working!

  4. I hope the innocent men were interrogated on video.

    “The Crystal Lake detectives’ persistent approach…”

    “Of all the convicted people who have been exonerated by DNA testing, almost 30 percent confessed to crimes they didn’t commit…”

    But even if not, did the guy accept the needle?

    Or was it forced upon him?

    Don’t convict these guys just because they offend your cultural norms.

    Drug use is a consensual activity.

  5. Fallen Angel Llavona: Did you spend some time in a Mexican jail … or was it a Honduran hoosgow? Were you you set upon because you were once pretty?

    Advice: Quit trying to stir up racial division with your screwy cant.

    Seth Ferguson and John Galloway are just two more White victims figuratively of your brainwash-teaching!

    I really cant wait until the chaos you helped perpetrate sends you into our gentle hands.
