The Geneva Police Department is investigating a suspicious death after finding a 43-year-old Geneva woman dead from a fatal gunshot wound outside her home.
A female relative living in the Chicago area called police at 8:02 p.m. on Wednesday to report the woman as possibly missing. Geneva and St. Charles police responded to conduct a well-being check at a home in the 700 block of McKinley Avenue.
Upon arrival, officers met with a male family member who was unable to answer officer questions or provide any substantiated information on the missing woman. Officers subsequently checked the home’s property and found the woman, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
The male family member was taken into custody as a person of interest. The Kane County Major Crimes Unit was called to the home to assist with the investigation. Geneva Police do not believe there is a general threat to the public.
An autopsy with the Kane County Coroner’s Office is pending, and no charges have been filed in the case, which remains an ongoing investigation. Future updates may be provided as more details become available. Geneva Police request anyone with information about the incident to call the department’s Investigations Division at 630-232-4736.
