Person in Custody in Schaumburg Strangling Case

Person in Custody in Schaumburg Strangling Case

People who live in the Schaumburg area said they're glad someone's in custody for such a heinous and hateful crime. "The detectives are still working with the Cook County States Attorney Office on this case".

According to police, Thrasher was found dead in her home in the 2600 block of Clipper Drive on Sunday, April 16, after she missed Easter morning church services.

Police issued a community alert to residents of the northwest suburb Tuesday afternoon, and said the number of patrol officers and detectives in the area has been increased. Friends of Tiffany Thrasher, 33, were waiting outside of the apartment when officers arrived on the scene, police said in a news release.

Neighbors expressed relief that a suspect has been arrested in the case, but they said the brutal crime has shattered a sense of security in the neighborhood. Because the investigation is still ongoing, King said she doesn't know if Thrasher had insurance to cover funeral and memorial expenses. She had failed to show up for Easter church services on Sunday, and members of the congregation had become anxious. Thrasher's body was found inside the apartment, and her death was ruled a homicide after an autopsy determined she had been strangeled, the Daily Herald reports.

"We know her soul has found eternal peace but she deserves to be honored in this transition", she wrote on the site.

Thrasher had a female roommate who was out of town for the holiday weekend, authorities said.

Police say they have 200 pieces of physical evidence.

Police say Thrasher was strangled sometime between Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 11:45 a.m.

"We're grieving with family members. It's a personal loss to each of us".
