Major Case Assistance Team (MCAT) going to work early Saturday morning about daybreak to support Arlington Heights Police Department for a double homicide investigation on Derbyshire Lane near Campbell Street.

The Arlington Heights Police Department confirmed about noon Saturday June 8, 2019 that investigators are investigating a double homicide in the 0-99 block of South Derbyshire Lane, and that a person of interest is in custody. Police emphasized that evidence suggests the incident is contained and there is no further risk to the community.

Arlington Heights Police officers responded to a single-family residence on the east side of Derbyshire Lane near Campbell Street for a “Well Being Check.”

Police said that on Saturday June 8, 2019 at approximately 12:32 A.M. an individual dialed 9-1-1 from inside the residence. No discernible conversation took place between any person in the home and the telecommunications operator at the 9-1-1 center, according to the Arlington Heights Police Department. Arlington Heights police officers were dispatched to investigate the open telephone line. Upon arrival, first responders found two individuals with traumatic injuries.

Arlington Heights Fire Department paramedics were called to the scene. Paramedics determined the victims were beyond benefitting from any medical attention after the scene was secured by police officers inside the home.

Early Saturday Arlington Heights Police Department Detectives and Forensic Technicians were in the preliminary stage of conducting a very complex investigation. They are being supported by the Major Case Assistance Team (MCAT).

Although police expressed that only limited information was available initially, evidence early in the investigation suggested that the incident was “contained’ and that there is “no further risk to the community.”

Arlington Heights police also informed the community that the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office will review the case that occurred on Derbyshire Lane on Sunday June 9, 2019 in an effort to determine a cause and manner of death.
