Aurora police responded to an apparent murder-suicide Tuesday afternoon in the western suburb.
A citizen called for a wellbeing check at a home in the 1800 block of Sapphire Lane, where newspapers had piled up over several days, Aurora police said in a statement.
Officers entered the single-family home and found a man and woman dead with gunshot wounds, police said.
Police released few details, but said investigators believe the incident is domestic-related.
The Kane County coroner’s office identified the woman as 69-year-old Sharon Bell and the man as 67-year-old Lee Bell.
