If this is the Briscoe family (Billy and Tammy)then it would be my wife's nephew and his wife. Been searching for 2 days for information on this and cannot locate one single headline except for this on Topix. If any news is found, please email to [email protected] (clippings, websites, anything).

It was probably my wife's nephew and his wife. They were found dead together in their trailer around Flat Rock. One of their sons discovered them about 36 hrs after death. We won't have the autopsy report for a few months but we know it was either drug induced or suffocation. This is about all the family knows right now as the majority of us live in Alabama. I've looked about for news but, quite frankly, Michigan news sources really suck.

On a side note, the bodies are being sent to Alabama for burial next Tuesday. If I find out more info I will post it.

Yesterday was the services for Bill and Tami. Both Ian and Ethan are handling themselves with great dignity in the face of the awful tragedy. I know Tami died 3 hours after Bill. It was just terrible to see them both together. Tami did not look at all like herself. The boys Eddie and Shawn are sticking close to their mom Rose. Both families are of course devastated. There was an overflow of people who attended the service. This has been a long spiraling downturn for the past few years as we all watched the medical problems and pain of life destroy both of them. My heart will stay with Ian and Ethan. Please be careful with Lorraine and Jerry. My love and prayers for the entire family. If I get any more news I'll post it. And I hope you do the same.

The couple was discovered on Tuesday morning by their son after no answer on repeated calls. The only information available at this time is that it was a probable suicide. Autopsy will not be available for 6-12 weeks so there is no information on the cause of death. Memorial services were held on Thursday at Kernan Funeral Home for the couple.
They are being sent to Alabama for burial. Remember their sons in your prayers.
Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glints on the snow.
I am the sunlight that ripened grain; I am the gentle autumn rain.
