MARSHFIELD Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Two people found dead in a Marshfield home died by murder-suicide, according to information from the Marshfield Police Department. Yesterday morning, law enforcement officers responded for a welfare check on 41-year-old Melissa Wright.
At the scene, a vehicle belonging to 48-year-old Heath Heck, Wright’s former husband, was parked in the driveway. Officers say the door to Wright’s home was damaged and looked like a break-in had happened.
A search of the house found Wright and Heck dead in a bedroom. An investigation shows Heck shot Wright before shooting himself.
