Portage County investigators confirm that a shooting in the Town of Hull was a murder-suicide. Two people were found dead inside of a home northeast of Stevens Point Friday afternoon.
Sheriff Mike Lukas said evidence recovered at the house on Larry’s Lane led to that conclusion that “Larry Pulchinski shot his wife Nancy Pulchinski, and they were both pronounced dead at the scene.”
Lukas said the people that knew the Pulchinski’s did not suspect anything like this could happen. “We did talk with the family. They stated that Larry was depressed, but they had no inkling that something like this would happen.”
Lukas said the two were found by a family member, who called police around 1:30 pm on Friday.
The Sheriff says there are a few details to finish, but the case will be closed very soon.
Portage County was being assisted by the Wisconsin State Crime Lab out of Milwaukee and officials at UW-Madison.
