Funeral for homicide victims in Niles


Funeral services were held Thursday for the couple killed in their rural Niles area home last week.  The funeral was at Hope Community Church near Niles.  Hundreds of people came to say farewell to Carolyn and John Tarwacki.

Carolyn Tarwacki and her husband John were found dead in their home on Carberry Road last Friday.  Michigan State Police say the couple were the victims of a violent homicide. 

Police are now looking for a suspect they believe was in the area between 6:30 and 8:30 the morning of February 5th.  Police say the suspect left a trail of footprints between the Tarwacki home and nearby Yankee Street.  Police want to hear from anyone who may have seen a person walking on Yankee Street during that time frame. 

The suspect is described as a white male, 20 to 30 years old, with brown hair and a medium build.

The Michigan State Police phone number at the Niles Post is 1-269-683-4411.
