A south suburban home invasion that left one man dead and his wife injured appeared to be a “targeted” attack, authorities said Tuesday.

At around 10:25 a.m. Monday, deputies were dispatched for a welfare check at a home in the 26000 block of South Klemme Road in unincorporated Crete Township, the Will County sheriff’s office said in a statement.

Authorities said a relative of the home’s residents said they had not shown up to work that day and were not picking up their phones.

Upon arrival, deputies were let into the home by a family member and found a 59-year-old woman inside of a vehicle in the attached garage.

The woman told deputies that two “masked males” entered her residence the night before “for the purposes of robbing” them and that her husband was in the trunk of the vehicle, officials said. The 63-year-old man was pronounced dead on the scene, according to police.

Authorities said the woman was taken to an area hospital where she was listed in stable condition. A spokesman for the Will County sheriff’s office said that she was expected to be released from the hospital Tuesday.

The incident “appears to be a targeted attack,” Deputy Chief Dan Jungles said, adding that officials did not expect any other area residents “to be at risk for further violence.”
