Search warrant executed in murder investigation

GILMAN — Investigators executed a search warrant at a residence in Iroquois County on Wednesday in connection with an ongoing investigation into the murder of a gas station clerk last weekend in Gilman.

But the Iroquois County sheriff’s office is not releasing the results of the search warrant, according to a news release.

According to the release, investigators for the sheriff’s office have been conducting interviews the past several days in connection with their investigation into the murder of Jonathan Rubin, 27, of Danforth. No arrests had been made, the release said.

Mr. Rubin was found dead from multiple gun shot wounds early in the morning on Oct. 27 at the Shell gas station in Gilman, where he worked as a clerk.

Sheriff Derek Hagen said earlier this week that investigators have ruled out robbery as a motive in the murder, but they have not determined what the motive was yet.

Mr. Rubin was a 2003 graduate of Christ Lutheran High School in Buckley.

Funeral services were held Friday morning at the Danforth Reformed Church, with burial at Danforth Cemetery.
