A suspect has been arrested in criminal case involving Al Filan, 61, the Brother Rice High School teacher who was murdered this week by a stabbing in his Orland Park home in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. The suspect, according to the Chicago Tribune of Friday, knew the murdered teacher.

According to the report, the suspect is from Indiana and is a prostitute who was solicited by Filan via an online classified service. It is not known, however, if the suspect actually went to the home with the intent of killing the victim.

Filan was found murdered on Tuesday on his kitchen floor when police responded to a call which stated that he didn’t make it to work. Cook County’s medical examiner’s office reported on Wednesday that Filan died of multiple stab sounds.

Charges against the suspect – who has yet to be identified – have not yet been filed in the case.

Reportedly, Filan is part of a prominent family in the area. His sister Denise is a Cook County judge and his brother Bill is a Chicago lobbyist, according to the Chicago Tribune report.
