Couple, 2 children and 3 dogs found shot to death in Romeoville home

Police are investigating the shootings of a 38-year-old man, a 32-year-old woman and two boys in Romeoville as homicides.

At 8:43 p.m. Sunday, officers were asked to conduct a well-being check on a residence in the 500 block of Concord Avenue, Romeoville Deputy Police Chief Chris Burne said during a news conference Monday.

“A member of the family did not show up for work at 6 a.m. on the morning of Sunday, Sept. 17, and did not respond to phone calls throughout the day, resulting in family members becoming concerned,” Burne said.

Statements from the village of Romeoville and Will County Coroner Laurie Summers identified the man as Alberto Rolon, 38, although Burne said at the news conference his name was Roberto.

The woman was identified by Summers as 32-year-old Zoraida Bartolomei.

Burne did not provide information at the news conference Monday morning on the relationship between Rolon and Bartolomei, but he said the two children were “related” to them. Summers’ office has not said how old the boys were.

In a statement, Rachel Kinder, superintendent of Valley View School District 365-U, said the two boys were R.C. Hill Elementary School students who “tragically lost their lives in a senseless act of gun violence at their residence in Romeoville.”
