END NOTE: Wrigleyville Robbery Defendant Dies Before Trial

Welch
Here’s one way to avoid prison if you’re charged with robbery: Die.

The case against Derrick Welch, charged with robbing an Orland Park woman in the 1300 block of Cornelia last November, has been dropped after his attorney provided the court with a copy of Welch's death certificate.

The circumstances of Welch’s death are not detailed in court records. He was 31.

  7. If the "copy" of the death certificate came from his lawyer I hope the ink was dry.
