Six found dead in Chicago home

The bodies of four men, one woman and a child have been found inside a house in Chicago in what is believed to be a murder-suicide.

Interim police Superintendent John Escalante told reporters Thursday there is “no known threat” to the neighbourhood.

Authorities are still working to identify the dead. Mr Escalante said it was thought all the victims were family members.

He said police entered the house in Chicago’s Gage Park after receiving a call from a co-worker to check on a woman who lived there. She had missed two days of work.

Police saw one body after arriving at the house, went inside and saw five more bodies.

They have not determined the cause of death.
