An autopsy will be performed this afternoon for the two people who died at a Barrington home Tuesday afternoon, according to Lake County officials.

Orlando Portillo, the chief deputy coroner for Lake County, said the autopsies on the bodies will begin at around 1:30 p.m. and officials likely would not be ready to release any information until around 4:30 p.m. Portillo declined to reveal the names of the people, or their gender, until family members have been informed of their death.

 

The Barrington Police Department and the Cook County Major Case Assistance Team began investigating at around 4 p.m. Tuesday at a house on the 500 block of North Avenue in Barrington, according to a news release issued by Barrington police.

NBC5 Chicago reported that neighbors said an older couple lives at the home with their adult developmentally disabled daughter.
