04 04 21 Missaukee Co Murder

Michigan State Police are investigating a murder-suicide in Missaukee County.

Troopers were called to a West Branch Township home around eight p.m. Saturday for a welfare check.

There they found a 62-year old woman dead inside the home.

Troopers ruled her death as a murder, and identified a suspect.

Around one a.m. Sunday, Cadillac police officers found the suspect and tried to pull the suspect over.

However, he led them on a chase, and shot at officers.

State police say the chase led them to use stop sticks along M-55 near M-66. The man’s car was stopped,  but he fled from police on foot.

Later on in the morning around six a.m., troopers say they found the man on a golf course. He died by suicide.

They say the man was related to the victim.

The incident remains under investigation.
