Two years ago, on August 15, 2016, at 1756 hours the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office responded to 16058 Old State Road in rural Sycamore where Patricia A. Wilson (85 YOA) and her son Robert J. Wilson (64 YOA) were found deceased inside of the residence from blunt force trauma. Investigators determined the homicides occurred during the late evening hours of August 14, 2016. The development of a complete DNA profile of a suspect was collected from evidence within the crime scene. To date, there have been no matches. After this unique profile was developed, the Sheriff’s Office enlisted the help of Parabon, which specializes in DNA phenotyping. Individual predictions were made for the subject's ancestry, eye color, hair color, skin color, freckling, and face shape. By combining these attributes of appearance, Snapshot composites were produced depicting what the person of interest may have looked like at 18, 25, and 40 years of age with an average body-mass index (BMI) of 22. It is important to note that Snapshot composites are scientific approximations of appearance based on DNA, and not likely to be exact replicas of appearance. If you have any information about this crime, please contact DeKalb County Crime Stoppers at 815-895-3272. You do not have to give your name. Crimestoppers will pay a CASH REWARD UP TO $50,000 and you can remain anonymous. Call CRIME STOPPERS at 815-895-3272 or e-mail us atcrimestoppers@dekalbcounty.org
