Madison Police say a 39-year-old man and his daughter were found dead inside a home on the city’s southeast side Tuesday evening, in what appears to be a murder-suicide.
Police Chief Mike Koval told reporters at a news conference that it seems as though the 19-year-old daughter was the victim. He said there is no danger to the public and the case was not related to recent shootings or ongoing violence in the city.
Dozens of police cars were on the scene as well as crime scene investigators. The entire street was cordoned off as up to 150 neighbors, family members, and friends of the victims congregated there, in what became an emotional scene. A city bus had to be brought in to take several family members to a nearby church.
