Arlington Heights homicide investigation at house on Derbyshire Lane very early in the investigation about 1:00 a.m. Saturday June 8 2019.
Arlington Heights police received a report about 12:35 AM Saturday June 8, 2019 of an open line 9-1-1 call at a house on Derbyshire Lane just south of the intersection of Derbyshire Lane and Campbell Street Arlington Heights, IL. A 9-1-1 operator heard heavy breathing on the line and police went to check if there was a problem at the home.
Firefighter/paramedics were also dispatched about 12:40 a.m. in case there was a medical problem at the house. Police arrived and found two people dead in the house — possibly from stab wounds.
Paramedics staged in the neighborhood until police secured the scene and had paramedics move up to the scene where they confirmed that the two victims were deceased.
A homicide investigation is underway with the Major Case Assistance Team (MCAT) on the scene assisting Arlington Heights police investigators.
A female adult was taken into custody by about 1:00 a.m. Saturday. She was handcuffed and transported from the scene.
Several neighbors Saturday morning between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. said the married couple, who are in their mid-70s and have lived in the home for decades, had a history of trouble with their adult daughter. Police have not confirmed the identity of any suspect(s) or person(s) of interest and have not confirmed the identity of the victims inside the house, but neighbors say the man who has lived there is a Vietnam veteran who recently marched in the Memorial Day parade, and the woman who has lived there is a retired teacher who worked at Prospect High School. A neighbor also said that the couple have been very helpful to an elderly disabled neighbor that lives nearby.
