Victims and suspect identified in Madison murders

The Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office is releasing the names of three people who died Friday afternoon in a double homicide and officer involved shooting in Madison. The victims are 34-year-old Charity Ray Grossmann and her mother, 57-year-old Robin Rae Grossmann. The man who authorities say stabbed the Grossmanns, who was then shot by police, was 33-year-old Londrell Emone Johnson.

Charity Grossmann died at the University Hospital after being transported there from the scene on the 2600 block of East Washington Avenue. Robin Grossmann was pronounced dead at the scene by Medical Examiner staff. Preliminary autopsy results confirm that both Charity Grossmann and Robin Grossman died from homicidal edged weapon injuries.

Johnson also died at the University Hospital shortly after being transported from the scene with life-threatening injuries. A forensic autopsy completed late Sunday confirms that Johnson’s death is the result of firearm related trauma.

This case remains under investigation by the Wisconsin Department of Criminal Investigation, the City of Madison Police Department, and the Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office.
