Four people killed in a murder-suicide Tuesday were shot multiple times before the home they were in was set on fire, DuPage County officials said Thursday.

The coroner's office identified two of the victims as 37-year-old Ursula Nailor and her niece Andra Robinson, 21, of Bolingbrook. Police identified the other two as Nailor's sons, Darnell Holt and Daniel Nailor, ages 16 and 13, respectively.


Coroner Pete Siekmann said autopsies began about 8 a.m. Wednesday and went late into the night. Authorities were unable to confirm the identity of the youngest two victims because of a lack of dental records and were looking into possible DNA comparisons.

The victims' badly burned bodies were discovered Tuesday morning after a fire at Ursula Nailor's Summit Avenue home near Villa Park. Hours later, the suspected killer, identified by police as 42-year-old Cedric Anderson, was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot at a home in south suburban Dolton.

Authorities said Anderson was Nailor's boyfriend and occasionally lived with her.

In earlier releases, police identified Andra Robinson as Dominique Robinson.
