MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Illinois law enforcement have identified 64-year-old Anatoliy Ermak, who once lived in Edina, as a suspect in a double homicide that took place on Sunday evening.
A man and woman were found lying on the “bloody ground” outside a vehicle in Buffalo Grove, Ill. at about 8 p.m. First responders were unable to save them.
The names of the victims won’t be released until after their families have been alerted.
