Michigan State Police (MSP) Wayland Post troopers are investigating a suspected murder-suicide that occurred at 1828 Lakeridge Dr., Yankee Springs Township, and discovered on Tuesday, September 21 just before 6:00 p.m.
Authorities became aware of this incident after a co-worker traveled to the residence to check on one of the deceased individuals who had not shown up to work for a couple of days. After not getting a response knocking on the door, the co-worker peered through the windows and observed a male and female down inside of the home and immediately dialed 911.
Preliminary investigations revealed both individuals were deceased and died from apparent gunshot wounds. They were subsequently identified as 50-year-old Michael Cybulskis and 61-year-old Ellen Cybulskis, husband and wife. Evidence at the scene suggest this incident is a murder-suicide; however, detectives are waiting for forensic analysis to confirm.
Troopers were assisted by the Barry County Sheriff’s Department. This investigation remains open pending further investigation and prosecutor’s review.
