Officials Uncover New Details In Sycamore Double Murder

Facebook: Dekalb County Sheriff's Office, Illinois

There’s been a new break in the double homicide in rural Sycamore.

Police say several hundred leads have been generated into the murders of Patricia and Robert Wilson.

Authorities now believe the crime happened between 7:45 p.m. and midnight Aug. 15.

The time frame was determined by the last time Patricia was known to have made telephone contact with a family member. 

There’s also video footage showing the Wilson’s stolen vehicle driving east on Illinois Route 64 in West Chicago.

The missing Chevy Impala was located last month outside of Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. 

Police offer a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. 

People can contact Crime Stoppers at 815-895-3272 or at crimestoppers@dekalbcounty.org.
