Suspect in Sun River Terrace Homicide Arrested
JULY 11, 2014‐ KANKAKEE, IL‐ The Kankakee County Sheriff’s Office arrested 21 year-old Rex L Frank (10/14/1992) earlier this morning for the murder of 36 year-old, Rion S. Maiden, of Sun River Terrace. While investigators continue to look into details of the July 5th incident, it appears that the homicide may have been a result of a botched burglary/robbery.
Frank was the victim of a vehicular hijacking that resulted in two people being shot, including the death of one of the robbery suspects in April of this year in Sun River Terrace. Furthermore, Frank reported being the victim of an additional robbery in June of this year where firearms were apparently taken.
Kankakee County Sheriff Tim Bukowski commends the extensive amount of man hours and dedication put forth by Sheriff’s Investigators and Patrol officers.
Kankakee County Sheriff’s Office detectives continue to investigate the incident. More information will be provided if/when it becomes available. Rex Frank is being held at the Jerome Combs Detention Center on charges for First Degree Murder and Armed Robbery.
