One charged with murder after two people found dead in Highland Park apartment

A Highland Park man has been charged with homicide after police in the suburb found two people dead in an apartment.

Barry M. Goldberg, 45, was charged Wednesday night with two counts of first-degree murder, the City of Highland Park reported. He will appear in the district court on Thursday morning.

Highland Park police and firefighters were called to a wellness check Wednesday morning at an apartment on Green Bay Road, the city said in a news release. ABC 7 reported that investigators had received multiple 911 calls, with some reporting screaming coming from a second-floor unit.

Officers saw what they believed to be blood under the door and forced their way into the unit, the city report said.

Police found two people dead inside. Another person in the apartment was arrested, the police said earlier on Wednesday.

The city’s press release said officials are working with the property manager on site to provide support to the building’s other tenants. There was no threat to public safety and police were investigating the deaths, according to a city news release.
