Murder Investigation In Amboy

Posted by wlpo on July 19, 2012

Crime scene investigators are at a home on the west side of Amboy looking for clues to a potential murder.

An elderly man was found dead in his house last evening on West Main Street.  His name hasn’t been released.  Speaking to the Sauk Valley News, Lee County Sheriff John Varga says there is blood on the floor and wall of the man’s home but no weapon was found.

The man’s wheelchair-bound wife was in the home alive when police arrive.  She was taken to Mendota Community Hospital with unknown injuries.  Varga doesn’t believe she was involved in her husband’s death.

The house is surrounded by police tape.
