Sources: 2 Children Among 5 Dead In Murder-suicide In Buffalo Grove

According to the Coroner’s Office, three adults and two children were discovered dead in a home in the north suburban city of Buffalo Grove on Wednesday night.

The police are referring to it as a domestic incident.

At 11:12 a.m., officers were sent to a two-story house in the 2800 block of Acacia Terrace to check on a woman’s well-being.

When no one answered the door, officers forced their way in. During a search, they found five bodies, according to officials.

“Eighteen Years. “My children grew up here, so it’s something you’ve never, ever seen before,” said Falguni Patel, a Buffalo Grove resident.

The area’s roads are blocked off, but police say the public is not in danger.

Police added that no suspect is being sought and that this is an isolated incident.

“It’s a surprise.” “It’s not what you expect, especially since it’s a family-friendly, good, quiet neighborhood,” Michelle, a fellow Buffalo Grove resident, stated.

The Lake County (Illinois) coroner said that the ages, genders, and types of injuries won’t be known until Thursday, when the autopsies are done.

“Just my thoughts and prayers to the family and neighbors,” Patel said.

“Be with your family. Hold someone closer, please. When you hear “Michelle contributed,” you never know what to expect.

The Major Crimes Task Force of Lake County is assisting with the investigation.
