Chicago man who fathered 43 children is found beaten to death in his own apartment

A Chicago man who fathered of 43 kids was discovered beaten to death at his residence last week on the city’s West Side.

A neighbor found the body of 63-year-old John Hearring in his apartment in the South Austin area of Chicago and contacted authorities.

It appears that he died from trauma to the head, according to ABC 7.

Hearring, who was also nicknamed Nicholas, was a father of 43 children and a well-known figure in the community.

“He was the nicest man you’d ever meet. I don’t get it. All this killing is senseless and they are targeting the elderly,’ Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law, said.

So far, no arrests have been made in this case and investigators have not uncovered a motive for the slaying.
