Quincy Police Department Investigating Homicide
On Monday November 16th, 2015 a Quincy police officer was sent to 1340 N 5th apt 5 in regard to an ambulance call. Patrick Forbes (65 yoa) of 1340 N 5th apt 5 was found inside the residence suffering from injuries consistent with blunt force trauma. Forbes was taken to Blessing Hospital then transferred later that night to Barnes Jewish Hospital in St Louis, MO. The Quincy Police Department had been investigating the incident as a home invasion.
On Friday December 11th, 2015 Patrick Forbes died in the intensive care unit at Barnes Hospital. Consequent to Mr. Forbes’ death, the investigation has been reclassified as a homicide investigation.
The Quincy Police Department is conducting a second home invasion investigation that occurred at the same residence on November 27th, 2015. In that investigation, a 58 year old Quincy male was alone at the residence and reported two masked male subjects entered the residence and battered him. That victim was treated and released at Blessing Hospital.
Both investigations are ongoing. Anyone with information on either incident is encouraged to contact the Quincy Police Department or Crimestopper.
