FARMINGTON HILLS (WWJ) – A Farmington Hills man and his young child are dead in a case of an apparent murder-suicide.
WWJ’s Beth Fisher drove to the Green Hills apartment complex Sunday morning, where the tragedy occurred, and found it quiet there. But overnight, a 34-year-old man, with a divorce pending, apparently killed himself and his 22-month-old baby.
Kim Thomas, her husband and baby were forced to evacuate by police. “I felt really panicked, actually,” Thomas said. “You know, in the middle of the night … just getting out the bed, we got the baby. I don’t know, and it’s like you don’t know who you are living around. You don’t know what’s going on in the neighborhood. That’s what I was kinda thinking.”
Thomas was sorry to hear the man killed his child, and she hopes to move soon.
