The Oak Lawn man who was found unconscious on his front doorstep in the early morning hours of Jan. 30 has died of his injuries, his family reported.
Terry Reichert, 51, passed away at Advocate Christ Medical Center. Oak Lawn Police said he was found with facial injuries and unable to speak by his girlfriend at his him near 109th Street and Komensky Avenue.
Police and family members said that Reichert had presumably been laying unconscious outside for several hours after being injured.

Reichert had been out the evening before with his brother at a Hometown tavern. Security video shows the brothers leaving the tavern at approximately 1:10 a.m. Jan. 30.
The brother dropped Reichert off at his home but did not wait to see if he got inside the house.
