Police are asking for help after an elderly married couple was found murdered in their Illinois home.
The bodies of Michael Ladd, 79, and Lois Ladd, 68, were discovered around 10:30 a.m. Monday by a police officer in Edwardsville after one of Lois Ladd’s employees at her chiropractic office called the police to check on her. “We’re working feverishly right now to get as many leads as we can,” Jeff Connor of the Major Case Squad said. Connor did not give a possible motive for the crime or any details on how the couple was killed. The murder shocked neighbors of the couple, including one who said he doesn’t know who would want to harm the Ladds.
