Mass Murder: Five Killed in rural Illinois town

CHICAGO — Five members of a family were killed in a rural Illinois community, the police said Tuesday, a place ordinarily so quiet, residents said, that few people locked their doors.

Two adults and three children were killed Monday at their home in Beason, a farming town of fewer than 250 people about 30 miles northeast of Springfield, the state capital, the authorities said. A 3-year-old girl survived and was being cared for at a hospital, the authorities said.
