I understand his partner was driving. He was NOT wearing a seatbelt. Was cut of and slammed into somekind of pole. Massive internal hemoraging due to chest hitting dashboard.

Feel sorry for his partner as she will have to endure the facts of this sad event.

Rest in Peace brother- Your Family will be in my prayers.

My deepest sympathies to his family and friends and co-workers. His struggles and troubles now are over- he is undoubtedly in a better place now; in peace, suffering no longer. May God rest his immortal soul.

Please reach out to all who were close to him to offer assistance and comfort over their tragic loss. Please remember him in your thoughts and prayers- take extra care in your travels to prevent cruel fate from stealing any more young heroes like Eric before they truly blossom in life.

Take that moment to support those close to you when you sense a need. Officer Solorio will smile upon you from Heaven when we do good works in his memory- what better tribute can we offer him than that?

Stay Safe... for Eric, my Chicago Blue!

Is this the young officer from 007 or from 019 or one of the other N/S districts or the one from Indiana? There were too many to track for a couple of weeks there.

My first time posting... I wish it was not under these conditions.In honor of Eric and 'all' our brothers and sisters on the job, please remember the real reason for our St. Jude March is to honor all our departed members. The following Monday [8 May] is the scheduled dedication of the CPD Memorial and Park. If you can't attend a planned May memorial on behalf of our police family, please say a prayer on their behalf. REST IN PEACE.....St. Michael Protect Us All! [Amen]

I think you are being to harsh there. The poster had a valid point...in the last few months there were a slew of serious accidents on and off duty duty. No one was pointing fingers. Several officers were hurt, as well as, unfortuneately, civilians.

As a person who has lost his religion all but completely, I will just say that I hope that Eric is at peace and that his family also finds some type of peace as soon as possible. I've lost a family member in a senseless accident in the past, and my empathy is with them. It's difficult beyond words, and I wish them strength!

Rest peacefully, Brother!!!

Rumor has it that the Department is going to give Officer Solorio an honors funeral, but not give his family any death benefits because he died as a result of not wearing his seatbelt.

How's that for bullshit!

First, let me say God Bless to a good officer and may God Bless his family as well. I also hope that God Blesses his partner, as this is something that no partner should endure.
To all the rumor mongers:
1). An honors funeral can be offered by the city and is usually pushed on the family by the city yet it is up to the family if they want to accept it or not.
2). Seat belt or no seat belt, this death was in the line of duty as opposed to in the performance of duty. Therefore, the death benefit should be there.
Remember, these are only rumors at this point, wait a week and see what the city offers the family.
Heck, they gave John Thomas an in the performance of duty death benefit and he died of a heart attack at home!
Wait and see, lets not speculate.

DO NOT post that rumor about the benefits package until we see something in print please. We really don't need to be spreading bullshit at a time like this.

Will it happen one day? Probably. But let's not be posting that crap until its verified.

He was from 006 then went to TRU unit. He was wearing a seatbelt at the time of accident. Some good outstanding citizen hit them causing the police car to slam into a building/church.....and of course they fled the scene and nobody saw a thing, not a pole as stated earlier. He was talking on scene and did have serious injuries. The massive bleeding being spoken above was a result of the car hitting the building and him being trapped inside. He was paralyzed I believe from the chest down. I hate to say this but I cant stand it when people post stuff when they do not known everything that happened. Seatbelt or not they hit this building at about 45mph after being hit by another car!(He WAS wearing his seatbelt!) While in the hospital (Christ) he was on life support and had incurred an infection at which time his condition started to decline. His family removed him from life support today. Very very very sad....good cop, great kid and too young. Pray for his family. Rest in peace Eric.
From a sincere 006th district P.O.
Remember to please be careful whether in car or on foot...always pay attention. God Bless

This is neither the time nor the place to start playing politics. You are nothing but an insensitive jag off that gives the police a bad name.

This is a cut in my heart. I knew Eric, as well as Mike Gordon, who passed away during an on-duty crash in 011. Eric was 26 or 27 years old. Loved the job...loved being the police. He was assigned to 006, then went to TRU, and had the accident in 007. God's peace on his family.

So very sorry to hear the news. My condolences to Eric's family and friends. Rest in Peace, Officer Solorio.

On a side note to all our brothers and sisters: Always wear a seat belt, no matter what! We would rather see you on the medical for a year or so, rather than in a coffin.

The Chicago Police Department (Supt. Phil Cline) has not sent out an official press statement to the supervisors e-mail on the officer's death yet.
Thats because they are taking today as a holiday.

You can bet if there was some big bullshit dope pinch on the southside they/he would have sent out a statement by now.

. . . . you can bet if the 1st Dep. Supt. died on a Sunday before a holiday wearing his bedroom slippers at home; there sure as hell would be a press release sent out.

John Thomas WAS in a great guy however making his death in the "line of duty" is a sampling of the bullshit and corruption that goes on with the pension board.

The pension board is planning to remodel their meeting room. As many as possible, officers should attend to see what goes on and monitor these meetings.

It’s a known fact that in the past officers who came to observe the meetings in the past were kicked out and given the excuse that "there were not enough chairs." It was just an excuse so they could pull off their underhanded corrupt nonsense.

Sorry, but Cline did indeed send out an email from his BB just after P.O. Solario's death (based on the timestamp of the email).

Rest in peace, Eric. May a swarm of angels sweep you into your eternal resting place.

If you would like to leave a reflection for Eric go to the Officer Down Memorial Page >> http://odmp.org/forms/reflection.php?oid=18140

The "free speech" on these boards is not conducive to honoring a young police officer who died doing his job and a mother who is in pain.

John Thomas' Family deserved the line of duty pension. As does every other coppers' family. Instead of putting him down for getting it we should be demanding that every officers family gets this benefit. But once agin we sit and cry about what were not getting (and begrudging someone for getting it) instead of trying to change the way things are done.

We truly are our own worst enemies
