The family that was gunned down in their home in suburban Darien this week will be laid to rest Tuesday in a public ceremony at Our Lady of Mt Carmel Church.

A visitation is scheduled for Jeffrey Kramer, 50, Lori Kramer, 48, and their son Michael, 20, Sunday at Hallowell & James Funeral Home at 301 75th St., Downers Grove, the Chicago Tribune reports. Mourners will be able to pay respects between 3 p.m and 9 p.m.

Meanwhile Indiana State Police uncovered evidence relating to the crime. They reportedly pulled clothing and a gun used in the crime from a dumpster behind an International House of Pancakes Restaurant in Terre Haute, Indiana.

The prime suspect in the case, Jacob Nodarse, 23, may have driven through the town on his way to Ft. Meyer’s Florida where he was arrested Wednesday.

Another man who’s been in police custody, but hasn’t been charged, could be implicated soon.

The 28-year-old ex-boyfriend of Angela Kramer, the family’s 25-year-old daughter, allegedly met with one of the survivor's ex-boyfriends at a Joliet casino within an hour of the shootings early Tuesday morning, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting, citing sources.

Earlier, published reports indicated that the ex-boyfriend had told police that he was gambling at the riverboat at the time of the shootings.  Video surveillance from the casino seemed to corroborate that story.

Nodarse, who reportedly told police about his involvement in the case during a videotaped interrogation, is due back in Illinois soon after waiving extradition.
