DELTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The Eaton County Sheriff's Office is now investigating the April 13 shooting at a Delta Township home that took the lives of a father and two children as a murder.
Early on in the investigation, the information provided to detectives indicated that the death of the father, Joseph Lechleitner, and his two children, Vivian Zwick and Anson Zwick, was a murder suicide, according to a release from the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office.
That's changed based on new information, and detectives say they do not believe it was a random act of violence.
