Chicago Murders Under Investigation

Police in Chicago are investigating a brutal triple murder since three women were found beaten to death with a hammer.

Police say they are holding a man as a "person of interest" in the murders of his wife, sister-in-law and mother-in-law.

The victims were found bludgeoned to death yesterday morning in two nearby houses on Chicago’s north side.

Police found the bodies when they answered a call about a domestic dispute when they also found a man beating himself in the head.

People who know the victims were shocked to hear about the murders

"I met him during Christmas time and he did not look like a person who was capable of doing something bad like that he was very quiet, very well mannered," says Edmond Shasho, a friend of the victims.

Investigators think the man had fought with his wife and her stepsister at their home

Then went around the corner to his in-law's house and attacked his mother-in-law.
