Naperville cops: Finding professor's killer 'top priority'

Rewards have been offered and leads have been followed, but Naperville police and Will County investigators still have not yet solved the Jan. 27 slaying of an Oswego man outside Naperville's Scullen Middle School.

Police have said Matthew Lange, a 37-year-old assistant professor of psychology at Lewis University's Romeoville campus, was shot in the head multiple times at 7:19 p.m. as he sat in his car and waited to pick up his son from a Polish culture class at the school. They believe Lange was targeted.

Naperville Cmdr. Lou Cammiso said Friday that the investigation is "progressing."

"We have a number of leads that our investigators are currently following up on, and the resolution of this case remains a top priority for our department," Cammiso said. "We are unable to share any additional information at this time, as this remains an open investigation."

Following an autopsy. DuPage County Coroner Richard Jorgensen said the preliminary cause of Lange's death was "multiple gunshot wounds."

A $5,000 reward is still active and anyone with information about the crime is asked to call Naperville Crime Stoppers at (630) 420-6006.
