FARMINGTON HILLS (WWJ) – We’re following a breaking news story from Farmington Hills…
Investigators are on the scene of a gruesome homicide and assault at a home in Farmington Hills. One person is dead and two people are in the hospital in critical condition, after police say a man attacked his family members at their home on Rose Hill Drive.
Officers say two men and what they believe to be a woman were attacked. The woman’s body was found so brutalized that they are unable to make a positive identification at this time. The two injured people were taken to Botsford Hospital.
Lieutenant Paul Nicholas with Farmington Hills Police says they’re looking for 19-year-old Tucker Cipriano, a White man who is 5′ 11″ and 160 pounds with dark hair and green eyes.
“He is a person of interest at this point. There may be others that were with him at that time that we would also be interested in talking to. We don’t know how many folks were there at the time,” says Nicholas.
Police also say they are looking for a dark blue 2002 Ford Ranger pickup, with license plate — CHG 7962. The vehicle was last seen parked on Orchard Lake Drive.
Although Cipriano is not known for violence, Lt. Nicholas says they are in contact with schools and neighbors to be on the lookout.
“We’re going to cover all our bases to make sure the neighborhood, the schools, the children are safe this morning for the bus. But we believe that Mr. Cipriano will be apprehended shortly,” says Nicholas.
Police say Cipriano used to live at the house. Other relatives were apparently home when this happened and they are speaking with police.
Tucker Robert Cipriano was last seen in the Eleven Mile and Orchard Lake area. Police say they regard Cipriano as armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Farmington Hills Police at 248-871-2610.
