He was transported to Loyola University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Two suspects in connection with Investigator Estrada's murder were apprehended two days later.

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.
