CHICAGO, IL – The discovery of eighteen bodies along Chicago’s waterways in the past year has sparked fears of a potential serial killer.
While two cases have been ruled as suicides, the majority remain under investigation, leaving residents on edge.
Noah Enos, a 26-year-old restaurant worker, became the latest victim, intensifying concerns within the city. Chicago authorities claim the number of drownings aligns with previous years, with 41 deaths in 2022, 46 in 2021, and 43 in 2020. However, the community anxiously awaits answers, grappling with the unsettling possibility of a serial killer roaming the city’s waterways.
The discovery of Noah Enos’ body in the Chicago River last month reignited discussions surrounding the deaths of several young men found in the city’s waterways. Enos, 26, had been spotted leaving a rock concert on a Saturday night in June before his tragic demise. Authorities recovered his body from the river five days later, adding to the growing concern over these unsettling incidents.
Law enforcement officials informed the press that they suspected a potential link between his death and those of ten other young men in recent months. Disturbingly, since the beginning of 2022, the city has witnessed a total of 16 water-related fatalities, with the majority remaining shrouded in mystery and lacking a clear explanation.
Chicago residents are growing increasingly concerned about the potential presence of a serial killer, as the mysterious deaths continue to plague the city. The victims, all young men, have been found in various bodies of water, including the Chicago River, Lake Michigan, and the canals throughout the city.
Authorities have been working diligently to uncover any possible connections between the cases. While two deaths have been officially ruled as suicides, the circumstances surrounding the remaining cases remain puzzling. Detectives are exploring the possibility of a single perpetrator responsible for these tragedies, raising concerns that a serial killer may be targeting young men in Chicago.
