FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Patrick D. Kenneally, McHenry County State’s Attorney, announces that 35 year-old Shawn Brand of Wonder Lake, IL, was sentenced to eight years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for the offense of delivery of a controlled substance.
On July 5th, 2017, the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department responded to the home of Jeremy Caccamo located at 4517 East Wonder Lake Road. Mr. Caccamo had died as a result of a heroin overdose. The Sheriff’s Department recovered multiple bags of heroin from Mr. Caccamo’s room. Some of the bags bore the imprint of an orange basketball, while other bags were stamped with the insignia of the Duke University “Blue Devil” basketball Mascot. A search of Mr. Caccamo’s cell phone revealed communication with Shawn Brand.
