CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) — State police are questioning a couple of people about a shooting Tuesday night on the Dan Ryan Expressway that left a southwest suburban woman dead.

According to family, 67-year-old Denise Huguelet was a passenger in a vehicle driven by her husband when she was shot around 10 p.m. as they were southbound on the Dan Ryan heading home to Orland Park.

They had just been at the White Sox game at Guaranteed Rate Field.

A relative called the shooting “a shame” and said Huguelet was a wonderful woman who had just hosted a big family reunion.

She was a retired special education teacher who had worked at Evergreen Park District 124 for 24 years.

Evergreen Park District 124 said Huguelet is being remembered as an incredible woman who was kind but firm with her students.

Huguelet and her husband, Michael Huguelet, had celebrated their 45th anniversary this month and were joyous over the birth of their 11th grandchild, according to a Facebook post.
