NOVI (WWJ) – Results of autopsies on a Novi couple who died in an apparent murder-suicide have been released.

The Oakland County Medical Examiner reports 55-year old Lisa Anne Christensen died of a gunshot wound. It’s believed to have been inflicted by her husband — 59 year old Gunar Donald Christensen, who then fatally shot himself.

Novi police discovered the Christensen’s during a welfare check at their home, on Porter Street in the area of 9 Mile and Taft roads, at around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

According to friends and family members interviewed by police, the couple was going through a divorce.

Although police believe it’s a clear case of domestic violence, an investigation is ongoing with the assistance of the Michigan State Police Northville Crime Lab.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Novi Police Department at 248-348-7100.
