Today, bail was set at $3 million for a Naperville man charged with one count of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder. Daniel Olaska is accused of stabbing North Central College alumnus and District 204 teacher Shaun Wild to death at Frankie’s Blue Room early Saturday morning. Olaska also allegedly stabbed and injured college senior Willie Hayes and a bar employee, Rafael Casteneda.
After the hearing, DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin and Naperville Police Chief David Dial said they could not determine a motive.
“This is an utterly senseless act of violence and there is really no explanation for the actions that took place,” said Berlin.
“I know that the community wants to make some sense out of it,” said Dial. “It is a tragic loss for the entire Naperville community. Our hearts go out.”
Olaska’s next court date is March 5. If convicted of all charges, he faces a 32-120 year sentence.
