Two people are dead after an apparent murder suicide.
On Sep. 7, DeKalb City Police officers were called to 1360 Omega Circle in reference to a death investigation. Morgan Chaney, 26, had been shot and killed. She was found by relatives.
Chaney's vehicle and cell phone were missing and believed to have been stolen from her home. DeKalb County deputies found her vehicle almost two hours after the shooting at 5815 Miller Rd. in rural Shabbona. Inside, they found 31 year-old Andre Gomez. He died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Firearms evidence recovered from Chaney's residence is consistent with the firearm recovered in the vehicle with Gomez.
Investigators say the two were in a prior dating relationship. The case is still under investigation.
