    Oh my goodness, this is about 20 minutes away from my parents' house.

    So all six were bound and stabbed? But they don't think there's a threat to the community? Hmm... I wonder if they have their sights on a suspect already.

    I'll be following this one for sure.

    I'd say anyone who could do this to someone is Definitely a Threat to the community. In many ways.

    Police say the six victims were found throughout the home around 1:05 p.m. after a co-worker of a man who lived there called 911, police said. They appeared to have been stabbed, but police were waiting for autopsies.

    The co-worker told police the man had not shown up for work Wednesday or Thursday, Interim Police Superintendent John Escalante said at a news conference near the home. From outside, an officer saw "what they believed to be a body" inside on the floor, he said. They entered and discovered the bodies in different locations in the home.
    Escalante said there were "signs of trauma to the bodies.” Responding to a reporter's question, Escalante said there was no indication anyone inside had committed suicide, though police had not ruled out anything.

    Investigators were being “careful” and “thorough” as they “collect as much evidence as possible," he said.

    The Chicago Lawn District added patrols in the area, but Escalante said he did not believe there was a threat to the community. The deaths were "contained within the residence," he said, without explaining.

    Noemi Martinez said a couple in their 60s lived downstairs in the bungalow with their son, in his 40s. Their daughter, in her 30s, lived on the second floor with her two children, one around 9 or and the other in his teens.

    This is so sad! After reading the articles, I believe one of the "four men" is likely the teenage son of the woman who was killed.

    Interim Chicago Police Superintendent John Escalante said it appeared to be an isolated incident and there was no wider threat to the community, but police added extra patrols in the neighborhood as a precaution. Asked whether it could have been a murder-suicide, he said it was "a possibility."

    Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said later Thursday that police were "not yet" searching for suspects. The bodies had signs of trauma, but authorities have not determined the cause of death.

    It does not sound like a typical family murder-suicide. It may have been a family member though. I wonder if there are other sons or cousins that are estranged from the family?
