A Kalamazoo man has apparently killed his family, then himself


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Outwardly, it looks like everything is normal at 922 Miller Road. A van and a car are still parked outside the little yellow house. It’s impossible to tell today that it was the scene of a horrendous double murder-suicide.

It appears that sometime this month 41-year-old Patrick Gleason killed Lisa, his wife of four years and their 17-month-old son, Maxwell and then killed himself.

Public Safety’s Brian Uridge will only say that it happened some days before family members became concerned, called Public Safety and they found a scene that was so gruesome that even veteran officers found it tough to take.

Apparently the neighbors were completely oblivious to what happened.

There are no previous reports of marital discord, no hint at all that there was any violence in the home.

It’s a mystery that may never be fully understood.

Preliminary autopsy results could be back today, and it may answer some questions, but it can’t answer them all.
