Five people, including two children, were found dead at an Illinois home in what police said was a domestic incident.
Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek identified the victims as 4-year-old Ameila Kislak; Vivian Kisliak, 6; Vera Kisliak, 36; André Kisliak, 39 years old; and Lilia Kisliak, 67.
Police also found a dead animal, according to Buffalo Grove Police Chief Brian Budds.
Banek said his office performed autopsies on four of the victims. All appeared to have died of wounds from beatings and wounds, she said.
Police said they were dispatched to a single-family residence in Buffalo Grove on Wednesday to perform a wellness check on an adult woman. They were unable to contact anyone in the house and forced their way into the house, officials said. Upon entering, officers searched the interior of the house and found five people dead.
The wellness check was called by a colleague of a resident, according to Budds.
Budds said there was no threat to the public.
The Lake County Major Crimes Task Force is also assisting with the ongoing investigation.
