    Authorities responding Monday to reports of a missing couple discovered a woman injured in a vehicle and her husband dead inside the trunk following a weekend home invasion in unincorporated Crete Township, Illinois.

    Two suspects allegedly broke into the couple's home in the 26000 block of South Klemme Road on Sunday evening, police said.

    Around 10:25 a.m. on Monday, officials went to the home for a welfare check, police said, after a relative contacted the Sheriff’s Office and said the couple didn't show up to work and weren't picking up their phones.

    A 59-year-old woman was found inside a vehicle. She told police her husband was in the trunk.
