Dixon deaths appear to be murder-suicide


Two people are dead following an apparent murder-suicide in Dixon, Illinois.

Deputies in Lee County tell News 8 that a 911 call brought them to 1612 Joliet Way at 2:40 p.m. Tuesday where they found a man in the front yard covered in blood and holding a knife.

After taking the knife from him, paramedics transported him to the hospital where he later died from what were likely self-inflicted injuries.

Inside the home, investigators found a woman’s body.

The Lee County Coroner’s Office hasn’t identified the two people involved.
