Missing 21-year-old’s Body Found Wrapped in Sheet, Tied Up & Tossed in Grocery Cart

A 21-year-old Illinois woman was found dead Friday, and according to her family, not far from where she was last seen in January.

Rosa Chacon was found tied up and wrapped in a sheet in the Little Village neighborhood in Chicago, in a shopping cart located in the 2300 block of West 24th Place, Fox 23 reports, citing police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

She was reported missing on January 18 and was last seen getting into a rideshare vehicle around two miles from the area police found her body.

“Normally when our daughter leaves, we hear from her. She calls the next day, she calls an hour after she leaves, she’s in a house, she’s secure, she’s nice and warm,” her father, Jose Lucio, told ABC 7. “But we didn’t hear anything.”

So far, no one has been arrested and no suspects have been named. Community activist Raul Montes, Jr. offered a $5,000 reward Friday for anyone who has information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case.
