The Buffalo Grove Police Department has identified Roman Frid, an evening shift custodial crew member at Glenbrook North High School, as one of the two subjects killed the evening of Sunday, Nov. 17, in a double homicide, reports our sister paper, The Northbrook Tower.

Frid, 69, was a member of GBN’s plant operations team since 2003, Principal Dr. John L. Finan said in an email sent to parents on Tuesday, Nov. 19.  

“He was a loyal GBN employee who worked to ensure that our school facilities were clean and prepared for students on a daily basis,” Finan said in the email. 

According to Finan, members of the evening shift typically work at the school from 3:30 p.m. to midnight, thus it’s unlikely many GBN students had a close connection to him. 

Frid and his wife, Nataliya Ermak, were killed in what Buffalo Grove police called a “targeted” attack. The department identified Anatoliy Ermak, 64, as the suspect wanted in connection with the alleged murder, according to Buffalo Grove officials. 

Police said Anatoliy Ermak should be considered armed and dangerous.

The double homicide occurred at 150 Lake Blvd., police said. Anyone with information on Anatoliy Ermak’s location should contact the Buffalo Grove Police Department at (847) 459-2560 or submit an anonymous tip at (847) 662-2222, lakecountycrimestoppers.com.
