According to Detroit Channel 4 website ClickonDetroit.com, arraigned murder suspect Jerome Kowalski, who is reportedly believed to have killed his brother Richard and his sister-in-law Brenda in their kitchen in their home in Oceola Township in Livingston County, had a motive for the killing.
According to police officials in the story:
The motive for the double slaying was money, said investigators. Jerome [Kowalski] was upset that his recently deceased mother left Richard and Brenda Kowalski her inheritance and that he thought by killing them, he would receive the money, police said.
This development is interesting, considering that it was never reported in the Livingston Daily News, the Detroit Free Press, the Detroit News, and even MLive.com. Moreover, the police, unfortunately, are still keeping a lid on the details of their investigation and the autopsy results.
What brought this up was the fact that, while my parents, my brother, my sister-in-law (his wife), and my niece (their daughter), and I were at Red Lobster celebrating Mother's Day, my brother happened to mention this to our dad that he "read it in the paper."
This development will continue, and more details should be available on or after Tuesday when Kowalski shows up for his hearing....if he shows up, that is.
