What a way to start the day. Was woke up by telephone ringing @ 1:30 am. Answered, it was the Cook County Illinois  Sheriff's department detective calling me to tell me that my brother in law killed my sister, then killed himself. More details to follow.

 

I was hoping it was a sick joke on someone's part, but couldn't reach my sister on her cell phone which was always on. So I suspect the nightmare has just begun.

Got a verbal report from medical examiner office. According to them, my sister died from a combo of stab wounds and blunt force trauma. According to police, her husband died of self inflicted stab wounds.

 

My best guesstimate is that her husband George snapped and killed my sister. Not being man enough to take the life prison term or confinement to a mental institution, he wrote a suicide note & stuck it outside the condo, on the door. Then he went upstairs, laid down on  the bed and stabbed himself to death.
