A Chicago man who'd been convicted of killing two gay men in 1987 has died after hanging himself in jail.
The incident, which took place the evening of July 2, was reported on the CWB Chicago blog on July 3.
Patrick Tullis hung himself in Cook County Jail after he'd been arrested on weapons related charges the early morning of June 25. Neighbors in Uptown had then reported a gun being fired as well as seeing an individual with a gun.
In 1987, Tullis was charged with the deaths of two gay Chicago men. He said at the time that he had done so because they'd asked to have sex with him. He was convicted in 1989.
Tullis served half of a 60-year sentence, having been released in 2017.
The 2019 charges against Tullis included Class X felony armed habitual criminal; possession of a weapon by a felon; reckless discharge of a firearm; and resisting police.
