Two people found shot to death on the Kennedy Expressway early Sunday were killed in what is believed to have been a murder-suicde, according to Illinois State Police.
A preliminary investigation revealed that Eric Taylor, 43, and Camille Cooley, 36, appear to have died in a domestic-related incident. Police said Monday they believe Taylor shot Cooley in the head, killing her, then turned the gun on himself.
The shooting happened around 4 a.m. in the northbound lanes of the expressway north of Armitage Avenue, state police said.
A silver Chevrolet Tahoe had stopped on the expressway, where the driver and a female passenger were found dead with gunshot wounds to the head, police said.
The victims were identified as Taylor, of Beach Park, and Cooley, of Waukegan.
A handgun was found inside the vehicle on the floor near the driver, police said.
The incident remained under investigation Monday afternoon.
