She had spoken to her daughter shortly before her death on Saturday night as the family settled down to watch a movie, and cannot understand why they were murdered.

‘There are always people who are avaricious or jealous, but I’ve got no idea,’ she added.

A family member had asked officers from the Romeoville Police Department to carry out a welfare check on the family when one of the adults failed to turn up to work at 6am on Sunday and did not answer their phone.

Officers found a scene of carnage when they arrived at 8.40pm that evening.
