The Cook County Medical Examiner has ruled that the death of 77-year-old Oak Parker Sergio Quiano was a homicide as a result of "multiple sharp force injuries."

Quiano's body was discovered in his apartment in the 1000 block of North Boulevard on Friday, Feb. 2.

His body was discovered by a janitor performing a welfare check at the request of a friend.

Police said in a press release that there were no signs of forced entry, but there were "obvious signs of foul play." No other details were provided.

According to police, the incident appears to have been isolated and there is no risk to the public at large.

The West Suburban Major Crimes Task Force is assisting Oak Park police in the investigation.

Anyone with information can contact police at 708-386-3800 or anonymously at 708-434-1636 or online at www.oak-park.us/crimetip.

@ Mike Hanline: Yes, a thousand times yes, however that does not mean the person who took a life is not a threat to the community at large. Question: Do you think when this person is taken into custody, that the police will not handcuff the person? Why would the police want to handcuff a person who will not harm them?

He was a sweet, kind and generous man. He was also too trusting. He did not deserve to die like this.

It seems that whenever they make that announcement, the victim was killed by an acquaintance.

"According to police, the incident appears to have been isolated and there is no risk to the public at large" How do the police know that there is no risk to the public and why wont the police tell us the basis for there bring no risk to the public?
