2 children, 2 women, 2 men found dead in Chicago

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago police say two women, two men and two children aged 10 and 13 were found dead inside a home on the city’s South Side.

Chicago Police Chief of Detective Eugene Roy said Friday morning that the victims suffered blunt trauma. The bodies were found Thursday afternoon. Police initially said four men, a woman and a child were killed.

Roy says the victims’ identities will be released after the Cook County medical examiner performs autopsies Friday morning.

He says there was no sign of forced entry to the residence. He says the victims weren’t bound and that the home didn’t appear ransacked.

Interim Chicago Police Superintendent John Escalante said Thursday that the case appeared to be an isolated incident and that there was no wider threat to the community.
