TROY, Ill. – Police in Troy, Illinois, are investigating a homicide involving a 60-year-old woman. The victim was identified as Norma Caraker Thursday.

Police were asked to perform a wellness check around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday at a residence in the 600 block of Lower Marine Road and discovered the victim’s body. The woman had injuries inconsistent with a natural death.

“I’ve been in Troy for over 20 years, and I’ve never known anything like this to happen,” said Sarah Meyer.

No charges have been filed. The police said they’ll have more details once an autopsy is performed. Investigators believe this was an isolated incident.

“We don’t see this. This is a very safe place to live. There’s a lot of anxiety, a lot of chest pain right now,” said Magdalene Kueckelhan. “Crime does not define this place; if it was, I wouldn’t be here.”

Neighbors said the woman was introverted and kept to herself.

Off camera, Troy Police Chief Chris Wasser said it’s been over 20 years since a homicide occurred in the city. But within the past two and a half weeks, there have been two killings.

“Tonight when I lay down, I’m probably gonna double-check the door,” Kueckelhan said.

As for the person responsible, neighbors have one message for their actions.

“You didn’t have any right taking her life, but you also didn’t have any right taking the rest of our safety. How dare you! How dare you!” Kueckelhan said.

While the investigation is still ongoing, residents say they refuse to let this define the city of Troy.
