TOWN OF MANCHESTER, Wis. (AP) — Sheriff’s officials in Jackson County said scene evidence and autopsy results in the shooting deaths of two men last week indicate it was a murder-suicide case.
Jackson County sheriff’s deputies responded to a home in the Town of Manchester last Thursday afternoon and found two men dead.
They were identified as 78-year-old William Kerr and 72-year-old Daniel Zillmer, both of Black River Falls. Autopsies were done at the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office in Ramsey, Minnesota.
According to the sheriff’s office, results show Zillmer died as a result of two gunshot wounds.
Additional evidence from the autopsies and the crime scene indicates that Kerr died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said.
