According to the Chicago Tribune, the CPD sent officers to investigate after someone called police to say a “co-worker had not shown up for work Wednesday or Thursday.” When officers arrived to check on the missing co-worker, they looked through a window and saw “what they believed to be a body” inside the house. Upon entering the house, they found five adults and “a child 11 or 12 years old” — all apparent victims of a mass stabbing.

At least one neighbor told reporters she “knocked on the door Wednesday to get someone to move a van on the street but got no answer.” Others said the street has always been quiet. “No problems. No shootings. None of that.”

Police have marked off a crime scene one “block long and a block and a half wide.”
