A woman was found dead in a home in Streamwood, Illinois, which has been connected to an ongoing murder investigation. The woman and the suspect, Nathaniel Huey Jr, had been living together in the residence for approximately six years. The police identified them as persons of interest in the murder of a family of four in Romeoville on Sunday.
Nathaniel Huey Jr was found shot and killed in a burned-out truck on an Oklahoma interstate after a police pursuit near Tulsa. Another woman, identified as Melinda Palomo, was also found shot in the head in the same truck. She later died after being reported missing by her family when her phone was shut off following concerning text messages.
Internal reports obtained by the I-Team indicate that Nathaniel Huey Jr was considered a suspect early on in the investigation. Described as irrational and erratic by the police, he had extensive firearms training and owned a security company that advertised numerous guns, including one with an apparent silencer.
The motive behind the murder of the Romeoville family is believed to be known by the police. The victims’ family expressed their gratitude for the support they have received and stated that their primary focus is on channeling support, assistance, and love for their family and loved ones.
The investigation into the murder of the family in Romeoville and the deaths of Nathaniel Huey Jr and Melinda Palomo is ongoing.
