Victim in Sycamore double murder was lottery winner; killer still at large

SYCAMORE, Ill. -- Law enforcement is still on the hunt for those who murdered an elderly woman and her son at their home in west suburban Sycamore, but a potential motive is emerging.

It seems Patricia Wilson, 85, and her son Robert, 64, were former Lottery millionaires.

Robert won $1 million in an Illinois Instant Lottery game in 1988.

The Wilsons were found beaten to death on Monday, and their white Chevy Impala was stolen -- it has the license number 903 0980.

The DeKalb County Sheriff's Office has 20 detectives working the case.
