Autopsy: Pair Fatally Shot Before Decapitation
DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – Autopsies reveal that a man and woman whose decapitated, dismembered bodies were pulled from the Detroit River and a creek were shot to death.
The bodies are now being identified as 42-year-old Chris Hall and 32-year-old Danielle Greenway of Allen Park. The couple lived on Anne Street, near Allen Road, and were last seen alive one week ago.
Wayne County spokeswoman Brooke Blackwell said Thursday that Hall died of multiple gunshot wounds, while Greenway died of single gunshot.
The autopsies on their torsos, two heads and a set of arms and legs were performed Wednesday.
The U.S. Coast Guard recovered the torsos Tuesday morning, east of Belle Isle where Lake St. Clair empties into the river. A fisherman later spotted some body parts underwater and along a seawall, not far from where the torsos were found.
Also found with the body parts were an open suitcase, a sheet and a circular saw.
The slayings remain under investigation.
Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee and Allen Park Police Chief plan to discuss the case Friday afternoon in the Detroit suburb of Allen Park.
