Prosecutors say that as part of the sting, Forrest had been given $15,000 and a recording device to wear.

FBI agents watched Henderson get into the informant's car during their meeting in a Dolton parking lot and then leave in his own vehicle.

Prosecutors say the agents found the informant in the car with two gunshot wounds to the head and the $15,000 missing.
