Chicago police say they have conclusive evidence connecting a man who committed suicide in Wisconsin on Wednesday to last week's murders of the husband and mother of Illinois federal judge Joan Lefkow. Bart Ross, 57, killed himself during a traffic stop in suburban Milwaukee. Ross left a suicide note in which he admitted carrying out the murders.
