Man said to have fathered 43 children found beaten to death inside his home: Police

A Chicago man found beaten to death inside his home on Sunday was said to have fathered 43 children.

ABC7  reports John Hearring, 63, was beaten over the head and left for dead in his apartment off of North Leamington Avenue in Chicago’s South Austin neighborhood. He was well-known around the neighborhood and no one could think of a reason anyone would want him harmed. His daughter-in-law, Gwen Bridgeforth, told ABC she had no idea would want to hurt Hearring.

“He was the nicest man you’d ever want to meet. I don’t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly.”

According to Sgt. Bruno of the Chicago Police Department, so far no one has been arrested for Hearring’ death and there are currently no suspects. Not many details are yet known about Hearring’s reported 43 children.

The story is developing. Check back with CrimeOnline as additional details become available.
