The Clare County Sheriff’s Department says a shooting Wednesday is now a multiple homicide.

Around 4 p.m., deputies along with Clare Police and Michigan State Troopers responded to a home on South Harrison Avenue South of Surrey for a report of a shooting.

“The suspect had left the scene prior to our arrival, which we put out to the news agencies the description of her and the vehicle she was driving,” said Clare County Sheriff John Wilson.

They found two men, ages 36 and 39, shot and killed.

“They started searching the whole perimeter once they had search warrants, they had found two more bodies that were deceased on the property,” said Sheriff Wilson.

Those were bodies of an 85 year old man and a 61 year old woman.

“We’re not sure until the autopsies of the cause of death, but it is suspicious at this time,” said Sheriff Wilson.

They have not released the names of the victims, and Sheriff Wilson said all the victims knew Boyer in some way.

“The two that we initially were investigating did not live there,” he said. “They were there to help the family help do something around the house.”

So far, no motive is known.

“We don’t know the state of mind, so when you do get somebody in custody like that, thank God we got her before she was going to do something else,” said Sheriff Wilson.

Boyer is the only suspect, but the Clare County Sheriff’s Office does have a person of interest.

“We’re not sure if that person’s involvement in it but that’s being investigated,” said Sheriff Wilson.

Boyer was taken into custody without incident on Thursday morning in Wexford County.

No charges have been filed yet against Boyer.
