Illinois Valley Ties To Livingston County Murder-Suicide

Posted by wlpo on December 21, 2011

Two of the children killed in Friday’s murder-suicide in Livingston County have ties to Ottawa.

Brad Lemke of Ottawa is the father of 7-year old Ian and 8-year old Skyler Lemke. The two kids were killed by their mother Sara McMeen Friday at McMeen’s home in Emington. McMeen also killed one other child, her live-in boyfriend and herself.

The chief deputy sheriff of Livingston County says the investigation “has kind of stalled right now”. Investigators plan to talk to more family members and friends after funerals this week. All three children were found in the family’s backyard with gunshot wounds in the head.
