Police investigate suspicious Round Lake Beach death

The Lake County Major Crimes Task Force is investigating the death of a woman whose body police discovered Friday inside a Round Lake Beach home.

Round Lake Beach police officers responded to a report of shots fired at 4:40 a.m. at a home in the 1500 block of Cherokee Drive, according to a news release.

The Lake County Coroner’s Office responded to the scene, and an autopsy was scheduled for Friday afternoon. The office could not be reached for comment Friday evening.

The task force was called to assist Round Lake Beach police with the investigation because the woman’s death and injuries were deemed suspicious, the release stated.
