    Bodies of young couple found murdered in their New Baltimore home; Woman was pregnant

    Police investigate New Baltimore slayings
    Bodies of 2 people found in home on Lempke Street

    NEW BALTIMORE- Police found two people dead, victims of apparent homicide, Thursday evening inside a city home. Police found the bodies about 5:20 p.m. in a back bedroom at 50820 Lempke St.

    Police have not identified the bodies, but Police Chief John Bolgar said if the bodies were the homeowners, the case could be considered a triple homicide because the woman was believed to be pregnant.

    Police discovered the crime scene after one of the victims' parents contacted police because the couple had not shown up for work.

    Taken from the article posted by Prayersformaura:



    Police are looking for information on a white Saturn with Michigan license plate XAE 280, which was owned by the residents of the home. When asked if he had a suspect, Bolgar said right now they are looking for the car. Sgt. Todd Leveille of the Michigan State Police post in Richmond said the car was stolen.

    Keep an eye out for that vehicle, you never know, you could be right behind it in traffic.

    New Baltimore Double Murder

    There was a gruesome discovery made at a home in New Baltimore Thursday night, where two people were tied up and murdered. A young couple expecting their first baby lives at the home, but it is not known if they are the victims

    ...Chief John Bolgar, of the New Baltimore Police, told 7 Action News that there were signs of forced entry, but he does not believe this was a random crime.

    "It looks like the individual took their time in this. So, right now, I think it would be a little early to speculate, but this doesn’t look like something that just occurred," Chief Bolgar explained. "We do know that the residents’ vehicle is missing."

    Police are searching for two suspects who they believe have a connection to the double homicide of a husband and wife in New Baltimore.

    The suspects are described as a white woman and white man. They are both prime suspects and are wanted for questioning after police discovered they attempted to use the victim's ATM card in downtown Detroit, Local 4 reported.

    The suspects have been spotted twice, but police are still searching for them.

    Police say the suspects were seen driving a powder-blue Chrysler Minivan in the New Baltimore neighborhood around the time of the slayings, according to the station's reports.

    It's on Fox News right now as the "Big Story" .. apparently the victims were wrapped were from head to toe in some sort of clear plastic.

    Police think there's a man and woman that are persons of interest.
    There's a girl scene walking into a store trying to use their cards to buy something.

    The victims are a "normal couple" by description. Quiet as described by couples. Wife worked for a grocery store, husband worked for a manufacturing company.

    Friday evening, police revealed new details after a young couple was slain inside their New Baltimore home.

    Scott and Melissa Berels were found Thursday night, murdered and wrapped in plastic inside their home. Both were 27-years-old and Melissa was 10 weeks pregnant.

    Police believe a man and woman may be responsible for killing the couple. They said the suspects left the scene with the victimís ATM card and Scottís white 1996 Saturn SLT, license plate XAE280.

    New Baltimore Police Chief John Bolgar said, "They were found completely wrapped in plastic wrap and taped in what will be referred to as a full body wrap. The only thing we could speculate at this point is a possible robbery only for the fact that one of the victimís bank teller cards was attempted to be used today down in the city of Detroit. The individuals attempting to use the card were in the vehicle."

    The male suspect is believed to be in his early 20s and is often seen wearing a full length leather coat and driving a powder blue Chrysler mini van.

    Somewhere I'd seen a larger pic of the female suspect. Comparing the suspect to the victim, I see a faint resemblance between them... Probably nothing...

    This is just horrible. The picture of the female in the blue sweatshirt is very clear I pray to God someone will turn them in fast! Did these people wrap them in plastic wrap to smother them? Is that how they were killed or is LE not saying how they were killed yet.? I don't understand the plastic wrap but then again I don't understand brutally murdering someone either so....guess it can't be explained unless any of you are psycho killers?!

    Police hunt for New Baltimore killers
    Husband and wife found slain, their car and ATM card stolen

    NEW BALTIMORE -- Scott and Melissa Berels were entering a new phase of their lives. They had recently moved into a new home, a modest ranch in a quiet neighborhood that afforded a scenic view of Lake St. Clair. Melissa Berels had recently discovered she was pregnant.

    But their lives came to a tragic end one day last week when someone entered their home, killed them, bound their bodies in plastic wrap and tape, then covered their bodies with a tarpaulin.

    Police were still searching Friday for whoever killed Scott and Melissa Berels, both 27. In addition to the killers, investigators were also looking for a man and woman whom New Baltimore Police Chief John Bolgar called "persons of interest" in the case.

    The woman police are seeking "might have been the last person to see the victims alive," Bolgar said.

    Police seek 4 in slayings
    Pair tried to use victims' bank card; 2 others likely were last to see couple

    NEW BALTIMORE- By all accounts, Scott and Melissa Berels lived in a quiet home in a quiet neighborhood. But some time Wednesday night or Thursday morning that all changed.

    Police on Friday released additional details about people who may be involved in the couple's slaying. The FBI also is involved in the case.

    ...Police said they're trying to identify two possible suspects and two "persons of interest."
    A black man and woman attempted to use a bank card belonging to Melissa Berels at the bank, but tellers were suspicious and alerted police. The pair fled before officers arrived, police said. No physical descriptions were available.

    The two "persons of interest" were described as: A thin white male in his early 20s who is known to wear a long black coat. He is thought to be connected to a powder blue Chrysler or Plymouth minivan. The other is described as a white female, also in her 20s, who may have been one of the last people to see the victims alive.

    Im confused as to what the POI's look like. In this article here it says ' a black man and women attempted to use her bank card'...the POI's are described as white..Is the black couple who attempted to use her bank card not considered as persons of interest as well?? Maybe i'm confused...
