FOREST PARK — The chef at Whistle Pig BBQ in Bucktown has been charged with stabbing his brother to death, according to reports.
Nestor Soto, 38, of suburban Forest Park, was charged with the murder of his brother, Ivens Soto, 25, Friday afternoon in Forest Park, WGN reports.
The cause of death was multiple stab wounds and the death was ruled a homicide, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
Ivens Soto was found dead in a home in the 7700 block of Adams Street in Forest Park Wednesday afternoon.
Soto’s Texas-style barbecue and Creole joint opened in late July at 2241 N. Western Ave., replacing Honey1 BBQ, which relocated to Bronzeville.
Soto previously said the name for the restaurant was inspired by an episode of “Curious George” featuring a whistle pig, or groundhog.
A man who answered the phone at Whistle Pig BBQ on Saturday declined to comment. The man, who did not identify himself, said that the restaurant remains open.
