A retired Peoria policeman died Tuesday about a week after being in a motorcycle accident. Joe Spears suffered head injuries September 28th when his cycle was reportedly hit from behind while stopped at Route 150 and North Gilles Road. Spears is the brother of Peoria County Circuit Clerk Robert Spears and former Peoria City councilman Bill Spears. An autopsy is planned for Wednesday to determine the exact cause of death.
