DES PLAINES, Ill –  Police are conducting a death investigation at a home in Des Plaines.

Police have released very little information other than to say they were called to a home around 11 a.m.

Investigators remain on the scene at the home near Kathleen and Beau and tell WGN News they will “be here awhile.”

According to neighbors, a young couple lived in the home, but police have not released any details about the person who died.

But according to one law enforcement source this is a “suspicious death,” and police are talking to two suspects.

Officially police are calling this a death investigation, not a homicide investigation.


They say there is no immediate  threat to the community.

This is a developing story.  Check back for details.
