    SUMMIT TOWNSHIP, MI — A woman found dead in her Summit Township home by her boyfriend Sunday has been identified by police as 28-year-old Frances Marie Craig.

    The death was ruled a homicide by a medical examiner, said Jackson County Sheriff Steve Rand.

    Deputies from the Jackson County Sheriff's Office responded to the 5200 block of Timbercrest Trail on Sunday, Aug. 10, where Craig was found dead.

    Rand said investigators do not believe that Craig's death was a random act of violence. No one is in custody and the police investigation continues.

    The murder of a 28-year-old mother of two, who was found dead in her home by her fiancé, has shocked the Michigan community where she was a popular waitress and known for being the life of the party.

    Frances Craig was due to be married in just a month and a half when Eric Wolfe found her dead in their house in a quiet neighborhood of Jackson, Michigan, last Sunday.

    Detectives haven't said how Miss Craig died, but say they don't believe her murder was random, the Jackson Citizen Patriot reports.

    So she was not even the target? The plot was to kill a witness to an arson, and she happened to be there?

    Another update this morning:

    Timeline of events in death of Frances Craig

    [HR][/HR]
    That is correct. A victim for being at the wrong place at the wrong time. The target was not at the location when the hired killers went in to do their 'hit.'

    I do not think these men are professional hit-men, just hoodlums with guns.

    The three defendants went in knowing they were supposed to kill a man (abhorrent enough) & kill a woman who has two children in the house. Once they realized the person they wanted was not there, just leave. She likely did not know them. Can we not just keep people in prison once we know what and who they are? RIP Frances.
