An autopsy Friday found he died of multiple gunshot wounds to the head, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. The death was ruled a homicide.

Police initially said the body had been dismembered, but a spokeswoman for the medical examiner’s office said it had decomposed and was not dismembered.
