Vernon Hills police are still investigating a deadly beating as they continue to search for a missing couple in relation to the case. Daniel Baker, 21, and his girlfriend, 20-year-old Kristina Aksman, have not been seen since Aksman's mother, Marina Aksman, 50, was found beaten to death in her home Thursday.

Baker's mother tells the Chicago Tribune that she has not seen her or heard from her son. She reportedly filed a missing persons report on her son Saturday night.

Police call Baker a "person of interest" and Kristina Aksman "missing and endangered" because of her physical and mental disabilities.
