ROUND LAKE BEACH (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A woman's body was found in her home in Round Lake Beach early this morning — and authorities are investigating the case as a homicide.

The call to 911 came from the home on Cherokee Drive.  Authorities said a juvenile family member of the homicide victim made that call.

Lake County Major Crimes Task Force Spokesman Christopher Covelli said officers found the body of a 48-year-old woman inside the home in Round Lake Beach.

"The woman died under suspicious circumstances and had suspicious wounds on her body," Covelli said.

Covelli said authorities have been called to the home before, but it's not clear if any of the prior calls are relevant to what's now being called a homicide.

An autopsy was set for today but the results have not yet been released.
