Lynwood police on a well-being check at a home in the 19800 block of Orchard Court found the man dead with multiple gunshot wounds, according to a Lynwood police news release.
Before finding the man, police said they had received a call from Cook County sheriff's police, advising them "that a female had been kidnapped," the release said.
Authorities gave no additional details about the kidnapping or the apparent slaying and didn't say whether anyone had been arrested. Lynwood police were unavailable for further comment.
Police were working with the South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force to follow up leads, according to the release.
The Cook County medical examiner's office said it had not yet been notified.
