Illinois Congressman Sean Casten announces death of his 17-year-old daughter

Illinois Congressman Sean Casten announced the death of this teenage daughter in a statement on Monday. 

Casten’s congressional office said Gwen Casten, 17, passed away Monday morning, but provided no further details on her death.

The statement described Gwen as Casten’s “beloved daughter” and said the family was requesting privacy during this “heartbreaking time.”

Police in Downers Grove, Illinois, said they were called to the Casten home around 6:48 a.m. for an unresponsive 17-year-old female and determined that she was deceased.

Casten is seeking a third term in Congress in Illinois’ newly redrawn 6th district. Congresswoman Marie Newman is running for the same seat in the upcoming election. Her campaign issued a statement about the death of Casten’s daughter.
