The quiet community of Tinley Park, which is close to Chicago, gained notoriety when investigators discovered a slain woman along with her three adult daughters in their suburban house.

The victims, Majeda Kassem, 53; Halema and Zahia Kassem, both 25; and Hanan Kassem, 24, lost their lives in what the police are deeming a domestic-related shooting.

The Chicago tragedy unfolded on a quiet Sunday morning when a call to 911 at approximately 11:30 am led the Tinley Park Public Safety Department to the crime scene. 

A gun was found at the site, according to Chicago authorities, who have not yet disclosed the identity of the guy who was taken into custody at the house. The neighborhood is still in shock and mourning over the tragic loss of four family members, and the inquiry is still ongoing.

Village Manager Pat Carr expressed the profound impact of the incident on the tight-knit community, stating, “It’s a huge impact to our community and the neighbors around here.” Tinley Park, known for its tranquility, now finds itself at the center of a somber narrative that has left its residents shaken.

The quiet community of Tinley Park, which is close to Chicago, gained notoriety when investigators discovered a slain woman along with her three adult daughters in their suburban house.

According to Carr, there were no prior calls for police service at the Kassem residence, leaving neighbors bewildered by the sudden violence.

 Charlotte Vaitkus, a neighbor who knew the family personally, shared her sentiments, saying, “My daughter knows them. She went to school with the oldest son, and she employed the twin sisters. She always talked about how they were all very intelligent, and they had very high goals in life.”

The connection between the victims and the community underscores the profound impact of this tragedy. As the investigation unfolds, the void left by the loss of Majeda Kassem and her three daughters is deeply felt, not only within their home but throughout the neighborhood they were a part of.

This unsettling incident serves as a reminder of the pervasive issue of domestic violence that can silently unfold within the walls of any home. 

As the Chicago community mourns the lives lost, there is a collective call for awareness and support for those affected by domestic-related violence, hoping to prevent such devastating events from happening again.
