Teen Kelli O’Laughlin found fatally stabbed in Chicago home

A 14-year-old girl has been found fatally stabbed in a suburban Chicago home. Kelli O’Laughlin was discovered by her mother in their Indian Head Park home on Thursday evening.

Little information has been released about the incident, but Kelli O’Laughlin is believed to have been home alone when she was killed. Local residents have speculated that the killing might be connected to a spate of robberies that have hit the area recently.

Those robberies have gained attention because of fears that the culprit(s) used possibly used Google Maps or Street View to ‘case out’ homes before breaking in, although it’s not clear whether those fears have any substance.
