Murder-suicide in West Michigan leaves three and unborn baby dead

WYOMING, MICHIGAN (WKZO) -- Three people and an unborn baby are dead after a bizarre chain of events in the Grand Rapids area. 

It began with a report of an abandoned vehicle near Gezon Park in Wyoming and the discovery of homicide victim Charles Oppenneer Wednesday.

That triggered the search for his 18-year-old pregnant girlfriend, Brooke Slocum.

It all came to a bloody disturbing end when police gave chase to a suspect in the investigation and he crashed into the railing on the bridge that carries Burton St. over U.S. 131 late last night.

Police say they found their suspect dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound behind the wheel and Slocum’s body in the trunk.

Slocum was 8-1/2 months pregnant.
