OREGON – Police are investigating the deaths of a husband and wife who were found at 807 Franklin St. on Monday, Aug. 28.

Police found Philip Bausone, 50, and Becki Bausone, 54, both of Oregon, after entering the home at 9:19 a.m., Deputy Chief Matthew Kalnins said.

“Information was gathered on [the] scene, and forced entry was made to check the welfare of the occupants,” Kalnins said in a news release Thursday.

A local business asked police to check on the woman after she did not report for work, he said.

“There is no indication of a risk to the public,” Kalnins said. “The investigation is ongoing, including pending toxicology reports.”

Oregon police are being assisted by the Ogle County Coroner’s Office, the Ogle County Sheriff’s Office and Illinois State Police.
