An elderly mother and her son were found dead from blunt force trauma Monday evening in a home that may have been broken into in DeKalb County.

Officers responded at 5:56 p.m. to a call for a death investigation at a home in the 16000 block of Old State Road in Sycamore, according to the DeKalb County sheriff’s office.

Inside the home, 85-year-old Patricia A. Wilson and her 64-year-old son, Robert J. Wilson, were found dead, police said. Autopsies determined both died of injuries due to blunt force trauma.
