Chicago Daily Herald |
"A Fox Lake man who beheaded his friend while driving a snowmobile drunk was sentenced Friday to 30 months probation in Lake County Circuit Court... [Michael D. Winscom] had a blood alcohol content of .143 percent in the pre-dawn hours of Jan. 9, 2003, as he and Thomas Sieckowski, 26, of Round Lake Beach, were driving snowmobiles across a partially frozen Pistakee Lake... Winscom started back across the lake in excess of 120 mph and, without realizing it, struck Sieckowski as he was climbing out of the water . Sieckowski's helmeted head was found by sheriff's deputies on the ice and his body was recovered by divers later that same day."
