The DeKalb County Major Case Squad is investigating the deaths of a local woman and man.

Morgan Chaney, 26, of DeKalb, was found dead in her home early Sept. 7. Police found that Chaney, who had been shot, was missing her cellphone and car.

At 7:48 a.m., police found Chaney's car in Shabbona and found Andre Gomez, 31, of DeKalb, dead inside, with "an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound." Firearms evidence from Chaney's home is consistent with the gun found in the car with Gomez, police said.

Police said Gomez and Chaney had dated in the past.

The investigation into the two deaths is ongoing.
