"PEKIN, IL — A man apparently killed a woman and then himself in a case of murder-suicide that police discovered late Monday morning in a home at 1800 Fawnridge Lane in the city’s far south side.
"Although police were still piecing details of the scene together, they said the body of the woman, apparently the home’s resident, was found near the front door of the one-story ranch-style home and that of the man, reportedly her husband, was about 10 feet behind hers. A handgun was laying between his legs, police said.
"The bodies were discovered at about 11:30 a.m. when relatives of the woman came to the house after not being able to contact her, looked through the front door’s window and saw the man on the floor, police Public Information Officer Don Jolly said.
"The victims’ identities were expected to be released later today, he said. Although murder-suicide was not yet confirmed, Jolly said no one is being sought in the case."
