The owner of a Lincoln Square tavern who was found beaten to death last weekend still had $2000 in his pocket when cops found him -- but the keys to his bar were missing.

Officers found Robert "Bobby" Gonzales, 69, lying in a driveway behind O'Lanagan's Sunday after the burglar alarm sounded. Gonzales appeared to have been cut severely on his head, and later died at the hospital.

Investigators are looking at several suspects who don't live in Lincoln Square, according to Ald. Gene Schulter (47th).

Neighbors and longtime friends are mystified as to what happened at the shot-and-a-beer establishment, which was in the midst of being remodeled.

"Everybody liked Bobby," customer Gary Wing told the Chicago Tribune. "This thing is so bizarre. Everyone is trying to figure out what happened here."
