Mother Stabbed To Death, Son In Custody

The DuPage County sheriff’s office said that it is “conducting a death investigation” in Lisle Township near Downers Grove, and a source involved with the investigation said a teenager was in custody after his mother was brutally stabbed to death.

The sheriff’s office didn’t release any further information about the investigation on the 2100 block of 63rd Street, but a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed it was a stabbing homicide and a suspect is in custody.

Another source  said the mother was stabbed multiple times, and that her son was in custody. The name of the victim was not available, and there was no word of charges for any suspect.

The sheriff’s office said that no new information was to come Tuesday night and that more was likely to come on Wednesday.

Investigators’ vehicles were stationed outside of a single-family house on 63rd Street starting in the afternoon. The street was closed to westbound traffic most of the afternoon as well as the evening.

The house is in Lisle Township, across the street from a shopping center.

Downers Grove South High School is a half-mile west. Police did not indicate whether the community was in danger.

Neighbors told ABC 7 Chicago  that a woman and her two adult children live in the home.

To have it be so close to home … it’s really freaky,” Faith LaMantia said.

Neighbors told WGN-TV news that they saw a man run into traffic around 1 p.m. and then stand in the middle of the street looking up.

Police Are On Manhunt For Parents Of 4-Year-Old Who Died From Serious Burns

Police are currently searching for the parents of a 4-year-old Sumpter Township girl who died on Monday after being found with severe burns.

Police said that the home where the girl was found with serious scald wounds was full of animal waste and it contained guns and drugs.

The girl was found about 10:43 a.m. at the Rawsonville Woods Mobile Home community on Greenmeadow Drive.

Police found the girl unresponsive with “obvious” severe burns on her arms and legs. Family members were administering CPR.

The girl was taken to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, where she was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

Police records indicate that the incident isn’t the first time they’ve had trouble at the home.

On May 20, 2016, officers stormed the house following a report of a barricaded gunman after a domestic assault.

The girl’s mother said to police that her boyfriend had beat her, shot her dog and shot himself in a suicidal outburst.

Police said the man then fled the home and was later arrested on domestic violence charges.

The woman reportedly claimed she owned weapons that had been confiscated, including one that had the serial number filed off it. She pleaded guilty to weapons charges and received probation.

As police continue to search for the child’s parents, not much information about the investigation has been released.

Child Protective Services and the Michigan State Police Forensics Unit are assisting.
