Alberto Rolon and Zoraida Bartolomei were found shot dead alongside children and pets when officers conducted a welfare check at their home
Wow, every photo has a recurring theme of...... family.This is going to be the male victim’s Facebook page. His listed family members match those listed in public records, along with other things.
Agreed. Nothing that would indicate that this had anything to do with any sort of criminal activity. They look like the perfect family.Wow, every photo has a recurring theme of...... family.
No indications of potentially hazardous associations such as images of: Pimped out weapons, gang motifs, "monster" dawgs. drugs, 1% bikers etc.
This is just awful.

This seems to be personal, perhaps work related or something.
Neighbors were confused how no one heard any gunshots.
Residents having a hard time sleeping, knowing the killer is still out there.
"My niece, her bedroom is right there by the driveway, the neighbor said. "And she didn't hear anything. And she's got two little dogs and one of them if it hears anything, it will bark and nothing."
Police said the victims were killed some time between Saturday night and early Sunday morning.
They offered no motive or description of a shooter.
You just got me thinking. I thought the same, that the kids were killed because they could have identified the killer. But one thing now gives me pause. If the murders happened between 9pm and 5am, presumably the kids would have been asleep, as it was a school night (I read in an article the name of the school they attended).4 human victims, 2 dogs, presumably a minimum of 6 shots .. and nobody heard a thing? Possible silencer, or disinformation.
I can maybe see dogs as a target, or parents, but who takes out the kids as well. IMO it's likely someone known to the kids
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Romeoville Police Department at 815-886-7219.
I’ve looked into the angle of previous owners. Still working on it, but no red flags yet.It will be interesting to find out if the children were found in their beds (indicating it was likely they were killed in their sleep) or if they were out of their beds. If out of their beds, they were likely killed because they were witnesses. In their beds, I can think of several motives: hatred of the whole family for some reason; inheritance issues; witnesses (even though sleeping at the time of the crime, they may have witnessed threats against their father or mother earlier); a perverse act of kindness thinking the kids would be better off dead than growing up without parents.
I'm also wondering if it could be a case of mistaken identity. They hadn't lived in the house that long. Who previously lived there? My daughter and her husband bought a house that had been a grow house. After they fixed it up and moved in, I worried for the first couple of years that someone might show up thinking there were drugs or money in the house, or to collect a debt.
