An Illinois family was discovered dead in their home on Sunday night.

The adult victims have been identified as Alberto Rolon, 38, and Zoraida Bartolomei, 32.

Authorities are now saying that this is not a murder-suicide, and it is being investigated as a murder.

They currently do not have any suspects.

CNN has details on this horrible act of evil:

Police in a quiet community about 30 miles outside Chicago are investigating after a family of four, including two children, and their three dogs were found dead in their home Sunday night.

The two adults, their two children and the dogs were found with gunshot wounds in their home in Romeoville, Illinois, officials said.

Police do not consider the deaths a murder-suicide and are investigating the incident as a murder, Deputy Chief Chris Burne of the Romeoville Police Department, said during a news conference Monday.

The adult victims were identified as Alberto Rolon, 38, and Zoraida Bartolomei, 32, and the two children were boys, according to the Will County Coroner’s Office.

The investigation remains in its early stages, but police believe the family was killed between 9 p.m. Saturday and 5 a.m. Sunday.

Burne told reporters on Monday that police “do not believe that the offender is among the victims right now. It is not a murder-suicide.”

He also said the department is “not actively looking” for suspects in the nearby area, and there is no shelter-in-place order for the local community.

Fox News Digital reached out to the Romeoville Police Department for additional information but a response was not immediately received.
