Tow-truck Driver Sentenced to 50 Years for Road Rage Murder of Semi-Truck Driver

Oak Brook‘s road-rage murder tow truck driver received a 50-year sentence.
In May, Anthony Tillmon was convicted of first-degree murder for killing 43-year-old Northlake resident Eduardo Munoz on I-88 in 2017.

Prosecutors allege Tillmon and Munoz fought on westbound I-88 at York Road in Oak Brook at 4 p.m. on April 21, 2017. Tillmon drove a tow truck, and Munoz drove an 18-wheeler.
“Witnesses noticed Tillmon and Munoz fighting and driving aggressively adjacent to one another,” said DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin.

After three and a half miles, Tillmon allegedly took out a revolver and shot at the semi.
The victim stopped his vehicle. After 1.5 hours, he died at Elmhurst Hospital.

Surveillance footage, I-Pass data, and witnesses helped Illinois State Police connect Tillmon to the incident after he fled.

“Witnesses and nearby cops responded immediately. “We were able to receive a lot of information straight away,” ISP Captain Bob Meeder stated, according to earlier accounts.
Munoz was engaged, a churchgoer, and a family guy, according to his friends.

Munoz’s fiancée earlier told ABC7 Eyewitness News that he was minutes away from the conclusion of his shift when he was slain.
