Woman Dead in Possible Domestic Incident (Updated)

An individual is in custody as Tinley Park Police are investigating the death of a woman in the Brookside Glen subdivision. The incident poses no danger to the community, police say.

One woman is dead and a person is in custody Wednesday in what was described as "a domestic case" in the Brookside Glen neighborhood.

"Police are stressing that the incident does not pose a danger to the community," a village press release stated.

Tinley Park Police running a death investigation at a house in the 19700 block of Silverside Drive after responded to a call at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 17., the release stated. 

The body of the woman was found in a neighbor's yard, according to a Sun-Times Media report. The names of woman and the man in custody have not been released. 

Cars slowed down as they approached two houses near the intersection of Silverside and Brookside Glen Drive, surrounded by yellow crime scene tape. For many neighborhood residents who were returning home from work, this was the first indication that something horrible had happened.

Others, however, were at home while the events unfolded, even if they weren't aware of it.

"I didn't hear anything, just saw the neighbor walk down and say something had happened," said a resident who lived four houses down from the crime scene on Brookside Glen Drive. He did not wish to be identified. 

A police officer later came to his door and told him they were investigating a crime, but that there was no danger, the resident said, adding he also received an autocall from the village.

For much of the day, authorities roped off the streets along Silverside Drive and Brookside Glen Drive as they investigate a crime scene that Mayor Ed Zabrocki called "a domestic case." A Suburban Cook County mobile command center was also on the scene.

BEAV,I agree somewhat with your comment,but as you see by other comments,excuses,TP is not as bad as other towns,I say Hooey it is,reminds me of all the mass shootings recently and the violence in Chicago and other major US cities,you got a president who made no effort except the Arizona shootings because a Poly was involved and then blamed the other side for being the problem.Now we had the CT. shooting and he wants to turn the country upside down.When crime starts popping up in a faster pace you can;t just say its happening all over or TP is still safe, or not hurting others feelings or playing politics, you are not smelling the coffee,because 20yrs ago what we are seeing now was not present at this alarming rate,just like Frank Williams put it crime is here!!

Lisa, sadly there is nothing the Village or anyone could do. People in her situation don't listen to people trying to help. They don't press charges and tie up law enforcement's hands. Similar to drug addicts, you can only help as much as they themselves are willing to accept it. THEY have to choose to USE the help. I have no doubt that she was offered the help. ESPECIALLY since EMS and Police were called there so often. (allegedly. Have no facts to this point. Just what neighbors have pointed out)

Vandalism, shootings, delinquency and domestic violence, I think, can be attributed to the bad economy we are in.

Please keep your gun from your feet. You react risk of self injury / harm before more than you are close to catching the bad guy.

I don't see the Link between President Obama and a TP woman killed in her home as suggested by Harry Callaghan. Am I missing something? You don't have to listen to sensible conversations around guns, you can stock pile them all you want. But remember the stats, you and yours stand a greater chance of being armed with weapons you possess than meeting harm against an enemy or would be assailant
