HOWARD TOWNSHIP – Almost one week after the bodies of John Tarwacki, 42, and his wife Carolyn, 39, were found in their Howard Township home in the 900 block of Carberry Road last Friday, police -who have been especially tight lipped about details surrounding their death, ruled a double homicide – are addressing the public as much as they can in the hopes for help in catching the couple’s killer.

According to information provided by the Michigan State Police, Niles Post Tuesday, detectives working the case have fielded over 100 leads in the case – but have yet to identify a suspect.

“Progress has been made eliminating several persons of interest over the past three days,” Det. Sgt. Fabian Suarez said. “The family of the Tarwackis has been very helpful and open with investigators.”

Police continue to look for a person of interest they say a witness had seen in the early hours of Friday morning. That person is being described as a white male, brown hair, 20-30 years old with a medium build.
