Thieves In Illinois Are Wired Differently

I guess that I have a way different mentality than thieves in Illinois. I could never steal from someone, especially a relative like a grandfather. That just seems so wrong. This suspect didn't just take something without asking his grandpa, he actually stole a huge amount of money.

The grandfather became unable to take care of himself. His grandson offered to help him out. It seemed like the right thing to do at the time. The suspect ended up with access to all of the victim's important documents. Then, he illegally began stealing cash from the accounts. He even took some money from the older mentor and invested it into his own business. Hopefully, karma hits this scumbag soon.
