Keego Harbor murder suicide: Lauren Stuart confirmed as shooter in triple murder suicide

Keego Harbor Police have identified the four family members found dead in their home in a triple murder-suicide, stating that Lauren Stuart murdered her whole family and then killed herself.

Neighbors consoled one another as they lit candles and placed bouquets at a growing memorial for the Stuart family.

Authorities added some details to yesterday’s tragic news: Lauren Stuart, 45, shot and killed her family members including her husband Daniel, 47, and children Steven, 27, and Bethany, 24, before turning the gun on herself.

The handgun was recovered at the scene.

Police are still investigating the motive, but confirm that gunshots were the cause of death for each victim.

On Friday, officers responded to a welfare check at a residence in the 2300 block of Cass Lake Road and were met by a relative who had concerns for the residents. The police found the bodies when they arrived.

“A relative had concerns and asked us to look into it,” said Keego Harbor Police Chief John Fitzgerald. “It’s tragic and our thoughts and prayers are with the family.”

Fitzgerald was quiet on details yesterday.

The motive remains unclear. Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities at 248-682-3030.
