EMINGTON, Ill. (AP) – Authorities say they are not searching for a suspect in the deaths of five people found in a home small eastern Illinois town.

Livingston County Sheriff Martin Meredith says first responders found the five people dead in Emington after dispatchers received a call Friday afternoon. Meredith says residents are “safe from any harm” and authorities are “not looking for anyone in this crime.”

The sheriff said Coroner Michael Burke would release the names of the victims once relatives are notified.

Livingston County board member Bob Young says a man, woman and three children were found dead. He says the children include an infant, a first-grader and a fourth-grader.
