Man, woman dead in apparent Aurora murder-suicide: police

Two people are dead from a double shooting Monday in suburban Aurora in what officials are calling a murder-suicide.

Authorities responded about 4:30 p.m to a well-being check at an apartment in the 1600 block of McClure Road, Aurora police said.

A family member told officers they’d been trying to get in touch with a woman inside the apartment all day without success, police said.

Officers made their way inside and found the woman and a man dead from gunshot wounds in an apparent murder-suicide, police said.

They were identified as Leesley Sandoval, 23, and Cristian Coronel Sanchez, 24, both of Aurora, according to the Kane County coroner’s office. Preliminary autopsy results revealed they died of gunshot wounds.

Investigators learned a neighbor heard gunshots about 8:30 p.m. Sunday but didn’t make a report, police said. Preliminary information indicates the incident was domestic-related.

Aurora police are investigating.
