A Marengo couple was stabbed multiple times Tuesday night by a man police say had a history of mental illness.
John G. Feldkamp, 83, his wife Audrey J. Feldkamp, 81, were at home in the 7500 block of Somerset Drive when Doran W. Bloom, 27, broke in and attacked the family with a knife, McHenry County Sheriff's Office said. Audrey Feldkamp was stabbed 14 times, police said.
The couple's son, Scott A. Feldkamp, 54, suffered a punctured lung and was transported to Sherman Hospital in Elgin for further medical treatment, authorities said.
According to reports, Scott Feldkamp was able to obtain a gun during the attack and shoot the intruder before police responded at 8:17 p.m.
John Feldkamp and Bloom both died at the scene while Audrey Feldkamp was flown to St. Anthony's Hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
McHenry County Sheriffs say the Feldkamps may have known Bloom, but there is no indication they were friends. Police were told Bloom was prone to "episodes of rage."
There is no motive and no indication why the Feldkamp family was targeted, police said.
