Buffalo Grove Police provide update to recent death investigation

December 5, 2022

Police Chief Brian Budds announces that the evidence obtained to date indicates Andrei Kisliak is responsible for the deaths of himself and his four family members who were found deceased in their home on Acacia Terrace last Wednesday, November 30.

“Based on evidence collected at the scene, information obtained by investigators and the Lake County Coroner’s examination, the preliminary investigation indicates Andrei Kisliak (39 years old) is responsible for the homicides of Amilia Kisliak (4 years old), Vivian Kisliak (6 years old), Vera Kisliak (36 years old) and Lilia Kisliak (67 years old),” said Chief Budds. “It appears Andrei then inflicted wounds on himself and succumbed to those wounds.”

At 11:12 a.m. on Wednesday, November 30, Buffalo Grove police were dispatched to a single-family residence in the 2800 block of Acacia Terrace following a call for a wellbeing check on an adult female. Upon arrival, police were unable to make contact with anyone inside the home. Forced entry was deemed necessary, and a sweep of the home was conducted. Five deceased individuals were found. The preliminary investigation indicated this was a domestic-related incident, and there was no threat to the public.

On December 1, the Lake County Coroner’s autopsies of the five deceased showed the cause of death for all to be from sharp force injuries.
“Our community is mourning, and I hope these findings help bring some closure as we continue to process this terrible tragedy,” said Chief Budds.
Chief Budds reminds the public that the investigation remains active and ongoing.
