The family of Justin Plackowska spoke out on Facebook about the tragic fate of the little boy.
“Justin if you are in heaven my son don’t abandoned us in difficult times,” Artur Plackowski wrote in Polish as a comment below a picture of Justin looking up at the camera and smiling, gaps where his two front teeth should be. Artur is apparently the father of the boy and husband of Elzbieta Plackowska, who is accused of killing the boy and Olivia Dworakowski.
“I cannot justify what happened my wife very much loved that baby i can’t understand why she did that,” he wrote as another comment for that same picture.
Seconds later he added, “I am forgiving her!!!!!!!”
Justin’s older brother also took to Facebook to remember the little boy.
On Matt Plackowski’s Facebook page, he posted a photo of the little boy dressed in a white martial art’s uniform posing with what appears to be his older brother and a large Tae Kwon Do trophy.
“My angel,” Matt Plackowski wrote in a comment.
As friends wrote their condolences and offer prayers, Matt Plackowski commented, “Everyone dont pray for me pray for Justin and that girl. Keep their spirits alive for me.”
Funeral arrangements for Olivia are handled by Skaja Terrace Funeral Home in Niles, but the services are private, according to the funeral home. The girl’s mother could not be reached Saturday.
Information for Justin’s services was not immediately known. Attemps to reach his family were unsuccessful.
