High school freshman stabbed to death in home invasion
A man is being questioned by police in connection to the fatal stabbing
A 14-year-old girl was found stabbed to death after what police believe to be a home invasion.
Kelli O’Laughlin was discovered by her mother at their suburban Chicago home on Thursday afternoon with multiple stab wounds.
The high school freshman was rushed to the nearby Adventist LaGrange Hospital and was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
Few details were released about the incident, but police believe that the teen walked in on a burglary in progress between 4:45pm and 5:30pm.
“We believe there was a burglary going on in the home,” Indian Head Park Police Chief Frank Alonzo said. “They confronted her, and, sadly, they killed her.”
Police are questioning a man in connection with the fatal stabbing, but so far no charges have been filed.
When asked about the possible suspect, Alonzo would only say, “That’s under investigation.”
News of Kelli’s death has been met with shock by local residents.
“Our community has been shaken,” Indian Head Park Mayor, Richard Andrews, said. “It feels as if we’ve lost a family member.”
Similar reactions were posted online by friends and classmates of the popular schoolgirl, who created Facebook groups with titles such as ‘Kelli O'Laughlin~~~You Will Be Missed,’ and ‘R.I.P Kelli O'Laughlin. You will always be deeply in our hearts.’
