JOLIET, Ill. – Will County detectives say a person of interest questioned in the murder of a bartender has hired a lawyer and is no longer talking to them.

Kaitlyn Kearns, 24 of Mokena, Illinois,  was last seen early Monday when she finished her bartending shift at Woody's Bar in Joliet.

She told friends she was going to the Outlaws Motorcycle Club about a mile away.

Kearns' body, with a single gunshot wound to the head, was found along with her 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee in rural Kankakee County.

Police raided the Outlaws clubhouse and took custody of a vehicle.

Investigators say there's no threat to the public. They believe Kearns was targeted.

Friends and family held a candle light vigil Thursday night for Kaitlyn outside Woody's Bar.
