BENSENVILLE, Ill. — A woman whose body was found near a suburban golf course yesterday was stabbed to death, officials said today.

Two people are in custody, according to the Cook County’s Sheriff’s office.  There are no charges at this time.

The 37-year-old woman, who neighbors identified only as Megan, died from a stab wound to the back, the DuPage County Coroner’s Office said in a statement citing preliminary findings of the autopsy.
