6 Found Dead in Suspected Homicide in Milwaukee Home
Six people were found dead in a Milwaukee home Sunday that is being investigated by police as homicides.
The shocking report comes as Milwaukee County reports a record year for homicides, with 220 killings investigated last year, Fox News reports.
Police said officers were responding to a home for a welfare check and found five bodies. The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office (MMEO) tweeted early Monday that a sixth body, another adult male, was recovered from the home.
“An additional adult male homicide victim has been recovered at that location. Total victims: 5 males and 1 female,” MMEO said.

While no motive or information about any suspects has been released, Police Sgt. Efrain Cornejo told Fox News that the victims’ injuries are suspected to have been caused by gunfire.
“It is important not to feel numbed by the ongoing violence in our community,” Acting Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson said in a statement. “A horrible crime has again occurred, and it is not a movie or a fictional account. These victims died in our city, in one of our neighborhoods.”
Arnitta Holliman, director of Milwaukee’s Office of Violence Prevention, told the press it is “ridiculous.”
“The community is tired,” said Holliman. “We are tired of seeing people’s lives snuffed out too soon in preventable situations. Any of the gun violence we are seeing is preventable, and we cannot continue on the trajectory we have seen the last two years.”
