Police release composite photos of suspect wanted for 2016 double murder


The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to help identify a potential suspect in a 2016 double murder via newly released composite photos, which were generated from DNA found at the crime scene.

On August 15th, 2016, at 5:56 p.m., officers were called to a house in rural Sycamore, on Old State Road, where Patricia Wilson, 85, and Robert Wilson, 64, were found murdered.

Investigators believe the murders occurred on the night of August 14th, 2016.

Now, detectives say that they have developed a complete DNA profile of the suspect, generated from “a significant amount” of physical evidence collected at the crime scene, and processed at the Illinois State Crime Lab.

A forensic DNA analysis lab called Parabon was recruited to help with the profile of the suspect, which predicts the physical appearance and ancestry of an unknown person from the DNA submitted.

Police released composites of what the suspect would have looked like at 18, 25 and 40 years of age. He is suspected of having fair skin, blue or green eyes, with blond or red hair.

The DeKalb County Crime Stoppers, 815-895-3272, are offering a cash reward of $50,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
