The McHenry County Coroner’s Office has identified the victim of a shooting last week near Spring Grove as an 18-year-old Harvard man.
Dylan E. Sanchez died from an apparent gunshot wound to the face, according to a news release from the McHenry County Coroner’s office. He was found dead May 15 and his autopsy was performed on Friday, according to the release.
About 7:15 p.m. May 15, sheriff’s deputies responded to the 11100 block of Serenity Path. Upon arrival, deputies reportedly discovered 47-year-old John Maki Jr. and Sanchez’s body inside the home.
The death is being investigated as a homicide, according to the coroner’s office.
Prosecutors have charged Maki of Spring Grove with first-degree murder after he allegedly shot Sanchez, according to a criminal complaint. First-degree murder carries a sentence of 20 to 60 years in prison.
An order filed after court Friday morning showed that Maki’s bond was set at $5 million, and the McHenry County Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent him. Maki is due back in court May 31.
