By Snejana Farberov For Dailymail. A suburban Chicago man shot dead his wife and then himself in what authorities say was a murder-suicide because he mistakenly thought the couple had contracted the coronavirus. According to a statement from the Will County Sheriff's Office, deputies who were dispatched to a home in the block of Bruce Road in Lockport Township to conduct a welfare check discovered the bodies of year-old Patrick Jesernik and year-old Cheryl Schriefer. The two, whose bodies were found in separate rooms in the residence laying in pools of blood, had each been shot once in the head and a loaded revolver was near Jesernik's body.

Illinois Man Reportedly Shot and Killed Partner and Himself Amid Fear They Had Coronavirus
A builder is thought to have shot dead his partner, their two young daughters, their pet dog and himself at a picturesque West Sussex village.
The property was home to builder Robert Needham, 42, his mother Maureen, 77, his partner Kelly Fitzgibbons, 40, and their two children Ava, four, and Lexi, two. Robert, described by one former neighbour as a 'bully', is believed to have shot his family, minus his mother, before taking his own life at their home on Sunday evening.
Yesterday, Mrs Needham confirmed the tragedy — and hinted that she may have even been in the property at the time of the deaths. In a now-deleted Facebook post to a friend, Mrs Needham said: 'It was Robert, Kelly and my lovely grandchildren that all died upstairs. She was nice but I kept away from him. I just didn't want to get into a confrontation with him. The deaths came just two days after Ms Fitzgibbons posted a series of photos on Facebook of her family out in the countryside last Friday under the heading 'our walk for the day'.

Maureen Needham, 77, who was at another location away from the home in West Sussex at the time, said on Facebook: 'It was Robert, Kelly and my lovely grandchildren that all died upstairs'. She wrote the comment under a picture of the family posted online last Wednesday. Sussex Police went to the three-bedroom home at 6. All four were pronounced dead at the scene, along with the dog, which was a Staffordshire Bull Terrier called Bill.
Detectives launched a murder probe, amid suspicions over a possible murder-suicide. Officers confirmed they are not seeking anyone else in connection with it. Post-mortem examinations and formal identification are yet to take place, they said.
Mr Needham owned a company called Needham Building Services which specialised in domestic construction, but this was dissolved last October. Since then he had been building an extension for his family after moving back into his mother's home. The killing death toll during the coronavirus lockdown which began last Monday is now at nine, after three other incidents in Wales, Hertfordshire and South Yorkshire.
Her twin sister Emma Ambler had posted a picture of the siblings together on Facebook which was followed by dozens of people responding with images of love hearts in tribute.
Her husband Thomas told the Daily Mail she was too upset to talk, adding: 'We are devastated. Miss Fitzgibbons' stepsister Cheryl Giles said: 'Kelly was the sweetest, kindest, loveliest woman who lived for her girls. The family had moved to the large property to help care for Needham's mother after his father Rex, who suffered with Parkinson's disease, died in The builder, who operated Needham Building Services before it was dissolved last year, was in the process of building a granny flat so the parties could live separately.
We got on well as neighbours. For a while the house was used as a care home which the family ran. On Sunday I was alerted to the fact there was a lot of activity in the lane outside.
I saw two paramedic vehicles, unmarked police cars in the lane as well as marked. At first we didn't know who or what was involved, but because of the activity it was obviously important. In West Sussex, Mr Meany added of the four deaths: 'We were naturally very surprised, it would take a lot for somebody to do that but there was no evidence previously that there was a problem. I don't know how Robert used to get on with Kelly but there was never any evidence of any discord.
I don't know where she is but I would suspect that she might be with one of her daughters. Other neighbours of the family also reacted with shock today at the deaths, with one who did not wish to be named telling MailOnline: 'This is an awful, awful tragedy. We know the police are not looking for anyone else so it makes it all the more shocking. Another neighbour said: 'I looked out there were upwards of eight or 10 police cars and a couple of paramedics vehicles with both marked and unmarked police cars.
The house is owned by the grandmother. After her husband died some years ago the son moved back in with his partner and they, between them, had two children. He added: 'What is sad is that we don't know who is dead over there.
The son he always seemed quite calm, collected, laid back, I would say. Forensics officers work at the scene in Woodmancote this morning. Forensic officers lift up tape in Woodmancote today after the family of four were found dead.

Nearby resident and district councillor Roy Briscoe told the BBC he lived in the same lane as the family. We can't believe what happened. It really is saddening. The whole lane is in shock really. Sussex Police Chief Superintendent Jerry Westerman said: 'This is believed to be an isolated incident contained to one property and in these early stages of the investigation we are not seeking anyone else in connection with the incident.

Это был молодой человек. В верхней губе у него торчала серебряная запонка, на нем была черная кожаная куртка, надетая на голое тело. - Какого черта тебе надо? - прорычал он хриплым голосом - с явным нью-йоркским акцентом. Сдерживая подступившую к горлу тошноту, Беккер успел заметить, что все пассажиры повернулись и смотрят на. Все как один были панки. И, наверное, у половины из них - красно-бело-синие волосы.

В панике она сразу же представила себе самое худшее.
ГЛАВА 97 Фонтейн стремительно вбежал в комнату для заседаний. Бринкерхофф и Мидж последовали за. - Смотрите! - сдавленным голосом сказала Мидж, махнув рукой в сторону окна. Фонтейн посмотрел на вспышки огней в куполе шифровалки. Глаза его расширились.
Росио натянула ночную рубашку, глубоко вздохнула и открыла дверь в комнату. Когда она вошла, глаза немца чуть не вывалились из орбит. На ней была черная ночная рубашка; загорелая, орехового оттенка кожа светилась в мягком свете ночника, соски призывно выделялись под тонкой прозрачной тканью.
- Komm doch hierher, - сказал немец сдавленным голосом, сбрасывая с себя пижаму и поворачиваясь на спину. Росио через силу улыбнулась и подошла к постели.
