On September 19, 2014 the Indian Head Park PD responded to a possible “Home Invasion” in progress in the 6300 block of Pontiac. Upon arrival, responding officers met with Victim # 1 who related that he was approached by Subject #1 described as male Caucasian, dark complexion, black hair early 30’s, wearing a yellow hard hat and tool belt appearing to be a construction worker. Subject #1 spoke with an Eastern European accent and walked with victim to the rear of their home. Victim # 2 stated that Subject #2 described as male Caucasian, dark complexion, stocky build, short black hair wearing a plaid shirt, late 20’s walked into her bedroom while she was reading and said his co-worker was doing construction work next door and needed two buckets of hot water. Victim #2 and Subject #2 went to the basement filled two buckets with hot water returned upstairs and were confronted by Subject #3 (no description available) who was in bedroom which was ransacked. Victim #2 grabbed her cell phone and dialed 911. Subjects fled the scene in a Silver Honda CRV northbound Pontiac. Cook County Sheriffs Police processed the crime scene investigation is underway. If you have an information please contact the Indian Head Park PD.
Justice has been served and the Village of Indian Head Park is forever grateful to the jurors for their swift and decisive verdict finding John Wilson guilty of murder. While nothing can ever bring Kelli back, she will always be in our hearts, and as a Community we are thankful this chapter is complete. Our thoughts and prayers of support are with the O’Laughlin family.

Electric Aggregation Update (9/4/2014)
If you are a part of the Village’s electric aggregation program and have not opted out recently, you should I have received the second letter that I mentioned would be coming from ComEd dated August 25, 2014 informing you that your electric supplier will be Integrys Energy Services starting about October 8, 2014 (depends on you meter read date). This latest letter should allay your concerns about being switched back to ComEd for your electricity supplier. As previously mentioned, this letter would and did confirm that our residents in the aggregation program would begin receiving their electric supply from Integrys. As I have been told, the electricity supply changes this month (September) and you should see that reflected on your ComEd bill in October. If you have any questions about this, you may contact Integrys at (888) 802-2885.

ComEd Outage Alerts Program
ComEd’s Outage Alerts program allows participants to report outages via text messaging.
Subscribers can simply text the word “OUT” to 26633 (COMED) to report an outage at the location ComEd has associated with their cell phone number and they receive regular updates on the status of their outage until service is restored. Non-subscribers who text “OUT” to 26633 will be invited to subscribe to the Outage Alerts program. New subscribers will receive a confirmation text-message that they successfully subscribed, and will immediately be enrolled to receive notifications on their cell phones or pagers when an outage has been reported at their address.
To subscribe, customers will need either the ComEd account number, the account holder's social security number or the primary phone number on the account. Customers can also now enroll in the text message program thru the VRU using their account number, SSN or phone number.
Please note that ComEd does not charge customers for this notification, but their wireless carrier may have message and data fees.
