My son is gone forever. How do you find justice for forever? I don’t know.”</p> John CarpenterThu, 06 Jun 2013 15:00:31 -0500 SantiagoHumbolt Park teen shot, killed<p><strong>Sun-Times Media Wire; Monday, April 15, 2013</strong></p> <p>Jonathan Santiago, 19, was shot and killed in the Humboldt Park neighborhood early Saturday morning, authorities said.
