‘It’s a shock,’ said Buffalo Grove police, after five people were discovered dead at a residence on Acacia Terrace.

Buffalo Grove police are still investigating after five people were discovered dead in a residence on Wednesday, including two children.

Neighbors stated they’d never seen anything like it. The identities of those found dead in the peaceful community have not yet been published by authorities.

“18 years, my kids grew up here, so it’s.. you never see it, never seen anything like this ever,” says Buffalo Grove homeowner Falguni Patel.

Officers responded to a two-story residence in the 2800 block of Acadia Terrace at 11 a.m. Wednesday after receiving a report for a woman’s well-being check.

When no one answered the door, police said they forced entry and discovered five persons dead inside.

“It’s a shock,” remarked Michelle, a local. “Good location, quiet location. Everyone keeps to themselves, yet everyone knows everyone else, so it’s really sad.”

Police have stated little, other than that the deaths were the result of a domestic altercation, that no suspects are being sought, and that there is no danger to the public.

The Lake County Coroner identified the victims as three adults and two children late Wednesday, but said their names, ages, and genders would not be disclosed until autopsies were finished.

“Just my thoughts and prayers to the family and just the neighbors,” Patel said.

“Be with your family,” Michelle said. “Bring someone closer to you. You never know what to anticipate.”

The inquiry is being assisted by the Lake County Major Crimes Task Force.
