SPRINGFIELD — Illinois Comptroller Susana A. Mendoza has released the following statement regarding the death of Wayne County Sheriff’s Deputy Sean Riley:  

“I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Wayne County Sheriff’s Deputy Sean Riley early this morning. As the sister of a Chicago Police detective sergeant, any death of a first responder on duty hits close to home. My family and I will be praying for Deputy Riley’s family as well as for the rest of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department. As the investigation into Deputy Riley’s tragic death continues, I hope that the perpetrator will be caught, and Deputy Riley’s family can feel some sense of justice. I ask that all Illinoisans lift up Deputy Riley’s family in prayer in the days and weeks ahead.”
