Just one day after asking for help from the public in identifying a Gary Homicide victim, the office of Lake County Coroner Merrilee Frey has issued a statement that the victim has been identified as Emmanuel Dominguez of Chicago.  The coroner further stated that the cause of death was multiple stab wounds.  This incident occurred on November 4, 2013 in the 2700 block of Maryland Street in Gary, Indiana.

This appears to be the same Emmanuel Dominguez who was reported missing on Halloween in Chicago.  CBS Chicago reported at that time that “Family members have mounted missing person flyers around that warehouse district where he was last seen.”  Dominguez’ car was discovered days after halloween according to published reports.  He was last seen with his girlfriend who was questioned by police.
