EAST DUNDEE (AP) — Authorities say an 85-year-old woman was found stabbed to death Friday in her home in the northern Illinois village of East Dundee.
The Kane County Major Crimes Task Force and the East Dundee Police Department are investigating the death of Mildred "Dodie" Darrington as a homicide. An autopsy found Darrington died from blood loss from a stab wound.
Authorities say they believe there's no immediate threat to the neighborhood, but they've released no further details about the investigation.
An obituary in Sunday's (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald says Darrington is survived by a daughter, two grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
