Lansing Police are investigating what they are calling a murder suicide of an estranged couple.
Police believe the husband shot the wife and then shot himself. Ingham County Animal Control confirms two dead dogs were taken from the home on Parkway Drive.
Police say around 8:30 Tuesday morning they received a call to check on the welfare of a resident living at 3907 Parkway Drive. When they arrived, police found two bodies inside the house. Investigators are not saying when they believe the murder suicide happened.
It's not clear if the couple lived in the home together. Neighbors tells us they saw the wife recently, outside, tending to her flowers. She worked in Lansing at the same place for a number of years.
Mayor Virg Bernero released his crime fighting plan last Thursday. He calls this, the city's 12th homicide this year, a terrible tragedy. Lansing Police stress this was not a random act of violence.
