Police say the 55-year-old Pollack was beaten to death Sunday after confronting a group of teens he thought stole his son's skateboard several days earlier.
Romeoville Police Cmdr. Ken Kroll says several other people may have been involved in the attack. The Will County coroner's office said Pollack was taken to Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
It wasn't immediately known if Ballard or the juvenile have legal representation.
