Woman, 85, and son found dead in rural Sycamore home; killer on loose

SYCAMORE, lll. -- Two people were found beaten to death in a home in west suburban Sycamore, and police are searching for their killer.

85-year-old Patricia Wilson and her 64-year-old son Robert Wilson were discovered in the home in the 16000 block of Old State Road around 5:55 p.m. Monday.

Investigators say they died from "apparent blunt force trauma."

The Wilson's white 2010 four-door Chevy Impala is missing -- it has the license number: 903 0980.
