No family members could be found to claim the body of a man who confessed to killing the husband and mother of a federal judge in Chicago in a suicide note, authorities said.

Bart Ross' body can now be claimed by a funeral home willing to bury it, the medical examiner's office said Saturday.

Ross, 57, shot himself to death March 9 at a traffic stop in suburban Milwaukee. Police later found a note in which he implicated himself in the Feb. 28 shootings of Michael Lefkow, 64, and Donna Humphrey, 89 -- the husband and mother of U.S. District Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow in Chicago.

Ross had been angered when Lefkow dismissed a malpractice suit he had filed, authorities said.
