Five adults and a child were found dead inside a Gage Park home Thursday afternoon, all of them bound and stabbed, police said.
Officers discovered the bodies around 1:05 p.m. after being called to the home in the 5700 block of South California Avenue for a well-being check, said Officer Nicole Trainor, a Chicago police spokeswoman.
A family member identified the dead as a family. Police said the victims were four men, one woman and a child. A co-worker of the woman called police after he did not see her for several days, a source said.
“We are in shock,” the relative said.
Fire crews were called but the six people were all pronounced dead on the scene, authorities said.
