Authorities say three people found dead in a home in Pekin are a husband, wife and their adult son. Police suspect the three were shot as part of double-homicide and suicide.
Tazewell County Coroner James Baldi says the dead are 77-year-old Ira Clemons, his 75-year-old wife, Barbara Clemons, and their 52-year-old son, Allen Clemons. They were found in the couple's home in Pekin. Pekin Police Spokesman Don Jolly says investigators are not looking for suspects. Baldi says the bodies were found about 9:45 p.m. last night after a relative of the three asked police to check on the couple's welfare. Autopsies are planned for tomorrow.
