2nd man arrested for home invasion, murder of local Air Force vet in McHenry

(PATCH.COM) — A second man has been arrested for his alleged role in the home invasion and murder of a local U.S. Air Force veteran.

Charles A. Campo, 31, of McHenry was taken into custody Thursday on charges of first-degree murder, home invasion and residential burglary. His bail has been set at $5 million.

The charges come following an investigation by authorities into the fatal shooting of Donald Jouravleff, 52, and just days after a first suspect, Jared J. Fox, 25, of Wonder Lake, was arrested for his role in the crime, police said.

At about 1 a.m. on May 27, Jouravleff was shot after two masked men forced their way into his home in the 1800 block of Davis Avenue unincorporated McHenry.

Jouravleff died as a result of his injuries later that day, police said. The men who forced their way into his home also stole cash before fleeing the scene.

Authorities worked “tirelessly” to develop suspects in the case and on Thursday, charged Campo.

A day earlier, Fox was arrested as well and charged first-degree murder, home invasion and residential burglary for his role in the crime, police said. His bond has been set at $2.5 million.

Information on the motive behind the shooting has not been released. But the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate the home invasion and murder, police said.

“This is further evidence of the determination and excellence of the investigators involved in this case. It reflects the continued pursuit to bring justice and resolution for this heinous crime.” McHenry County Sheriff Bill Prim said Friday.

Anyone with information that could lead to the arrests of additional suspects are asked to call the McHenry County Major Investigation Assistance team tip line at 815-363-2201. Those wishing to provide their name for a tip or information that leads to the arrest of the offenders will be forwarded to the McHenry County Crime Stoppers for a reward of up to $5,000.

Jouravleff was an avid fisherman and a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. He was passionate about his friends and family, according to his obituary. He was a new member of Willow Crystal Lake Community Church.

He is remembered for his energy and enthusiasm for life that “touched everyone who crossed his path,” according to his obituary.

Fox is next expected in court on June 21. A future court date for Campo has not yet been set.
