CRETE — The Will County Sheriff's Department is investigating the death of a man during an apparent robbery at his Crete Township home on Sunday.

The 63-year-old man was found dead in the trunk of a vehicle in the garage. His 59-year-old wife was found in the vehicle and was taken to a local hospital for treatment of her injuries, according to a release.

The wife told police two masked males entered the house, which is located in the 26000 block of South Klemme Road.

A relative called police Monday morning after the couple had not shown up for work and were not answering their phones.

Investigators are not releasing further information at this time.
