An 87-year-old woman and her 67-year-old daughter were found dead in their home near Glenview.
The bodies of Mary Hochner, 87, and her daughter, Elizabeth Schultz, 67, were discovered last week, decomposing in their unincorporated Cook County home near Glenview. Medical examiners determined Hochner died from a heart attack and Schultz suffered head trauma from a fall, though ongoing cardiovascular disease and alcoholism may have contributed to Schultz's death, according to CBS Chicago. The Cook County Sheriff's Department does not suspect foul play in either death, CBS Chicago reports. The women's family was told they probably died in late January, although an exact time could not be determined, according to the Chicago Tribune. The women were found when Schultz's daughter asked police to check on them, the Chicago Tribune reports.
