Authorities in eastern Illinois are investigating the first homicide in Iroquois County since 2009. Investigators have ruled out robbery as a motive in the death of 27-year-old Jonathan Rubin of Danforth. Authorities say Rubin was a clerk at a gas station in Gilman, which is about 75 miles south of Chicago. Iroquois County Sheriff Derek Hagen says Rubin was found unresponsive inside a storage room early Saturday by a trucker who came into the station just off Interstate 57 to use the restroom and buy coffee. Hagen says an autopsy has found Rubin died from multiple gunshot wounds.
