  1. Scumbag dies in jail.

    I suppose the county is on the hook to the family now for a mega money lawsuit.

  2. If his death was caused by negligence on the part of the county, they certainly should be sued.

    It doesn’t matter how much of a “scumbag” he may have been.

    That will, however, affect the amount likely to be recovered if he had dependents.

    Is he by any chance related to Jeff Ladd?

  3. Thank god it wasnt the “Andrew Ladd” that won a Stanley Cup when with the Blackhawks.

    This Ladd, I would suspect killed himself alone in his single cell.

    Probably would’ve been discovered earlier if it was an inmate beatdown.

  4. @Trumpion, Is this Road Rages offspring?

    That road rage was a good 30 years ago at Metra.

  5. This Ladd is not related to Jeff.

    This family originated in Oak Park.

    His father met his mother at Northwestern.

    Completely different family
