    According to the alert, Ralane may be with 33-year-old Nicholas Tuinstra.
    I've got a very probable FB for him, but not prepared to post it without a photo of him issued.

    Rest in peace Danielle and Tammy

    Thankfully, she is safe! Poor girl probably has been through an absolute nightmare. I hope she has stable loving family to care for her.

    It's in that article link. Her dad killed her mom and another person. Article says he's been found as well. She's ok.

    Police said the girl, along with the 33-year-old man, were found with relatives in Marquette County. The Marquette County Sheriff's Department was able to remove the girl from the home, and was able to convince the man to surrender.

    The man, reported to be her father, is currently in custody and is being questioned by authorities.

    Jurors heard opening arguments Tuesday in the case of a 34-year-old Berlin man accused of killing his estranged wife and her boyfriend...

    Prosecutors painted a picture of a gun enthusiast who was controlling toward his estranged wife. Enraged when he found out she was seeing another man, he obsessively waited for hours, watching her apartment from a booth in the restaurant across the street for the chance to strike...

    Defense attorney Barb Privat countered that there was a lack of physical evidence against her client: No DNA, no fingerprints, no eyewitnesses or video footage of the shooting. And no murder weapon.

    It took jurors a little more than two hours to convict Nicholas D. Tuinstra shortly before 10 p.m. Monday in Green Lake County Circuit Court of two counts of first-degree intentional homicide and one count of stalking resulting in bodily harm with a dangerous weapon, all as a domestic abuse incident, according to online court records.

    Judge Mark Slate accepted the jury's verdict and convicted Tuinstra on all three counts and ordered a pre-sentence investigation.

    Tuinstra sentenced in Berlin double murder

    GREEN LAKE (WLUK) — A Green Lake County man convicted of killing his estranged wife and the man she was seeing was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole Thursday.

    As prosecutors talked about the allegations of abuse by Nicholas toward Melissa in front of their daughter, Nicholas lashed out.
    He lunged at the prosecution table, screaming profanities.
    After a recess, court resumed, and Tuinstra apologized for his outburst.
