A Des Plaines man who police say was involved in a fight at a Rush Street nightclub two years ago died of his injuries Monday morning. His death has been ruled a homicide.
Jason Stangeland, 30, of Des Plaines, was pronounced dead at 5:03 a.m. Monday at Northwest Community Healthcare in Arlington Heights, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
Stangeland had been in a fight at the Level nightclub on the 1000 block of North Rush at 1 a.m. on Feb. 10, 2008, Des Plaines Police Deputy Chief Rich Rozkuszka said. During the altercation he suffered a blow to the head, possibly with a beer bottle, Rozkuszka said.
