The medical examiner has released the identity of a Round Lake Beach woman who died after police say she accidentally fell onto railroad tracks in Chicago.
The Chicago Police Department and Chicago Fire Department responded around 3:35 a.m. on June 25 to the Sheridan CTA Red Line station at 3940 North Sheridan Road for a call of a person on the tracks.
A Chicago Police Department spokesperson told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that a woman was on the CTA platform.
The woman accidentally fell onto the tracks and died at the scene, the police spokesperson said.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the victim Wednesday as Lisa N. Frescas, 28, of Round Lake Beach.
The medical examiner’s office has not officially listed Frescas’ cause and manner of death yet.
Investigators are treating the death as accidental and not criminal in nature, police said.
Video surveillance from the CTA station showed Frescas stumbling onto the tracks and making contact with the third rail.
An obituary for Frescas said she graduated from Warren Township High School in Gurnee in 2013.
She graduated from New Age Spa Institute in 2022 as a clinical esthetician where she pursued her passion for skin care, the obituary said.
“She had a big bright smile and an even bigger heart. She loved working out, traveling, and spending time with her family, friends, and beloved dog Georgia,” the obituary added.
Frescas leaves behind her parents, sisters and brother, and other family members. A funeral service was held Friday in Gurnee.
Frescas’ death remains under investigation by the Chicago Police Department and Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
