The man and woman killed Dec. 22 in what Aurora police believe was a murder-suicide have been identified.

The Kane County coroner's office said Monday they were Lee E. Bell, 67, and Sharon Bell, 69.


Police said last week they believe the two were married.

Both died of gunshot wounds. Police found their bodies in a home on Sapphire Lane after receiving a request that they check the welfare of its residents.

A police spokesman said the two were estranged from their families.
