HOMER GLEN, IL – The Will County Sheriff’s Department has highlighted a history of disputes dating back to 2016 at the Huff residence in Homer Glen, Illinois, following a tragic murder-suicide involving a local police officer.
On Sunday, deputies responded to a 911 call from the couple’s 18-year-old child after shots were fired at the family’s home in the 13600 block of Shannon Drive. Investigations later revealed that Michael L. Huff, 47, a Sergeant with the Glendale Heights Police Department, reportedly fatally shot his wife, Jacquelyn Huff, 38, three times in the head before committing suicide. This incident was reportedly the culmination of several previous calls to the Huff residence, starting from a welfare check in 2016. Notably, in October 2023, Michael Huff reported a battery incident involving a physical altercation with another family member, leading to further police involvement when Jacquelyn Huff needed to remove items from the home.
Sheriff’s reports go on to say the Huff’s six year old child was also present in the home at the time of the attack. An in-depth investigation into the complex case is ongoing. This series of domestic incidents underlines the critical need for awareness and intervention in domestic violence situations. The Sheriff’s Office is urging individuals facing such issues to seek help through available support services and hotlines.
