An autopsy has confirmed that the deaths of a Pierson couple were the result of a homicide, and police are looking for a light-colored vehicle that may be tied to their murders.

The bodies of Michael Thomas Greene, 59, and his wife, Kathleen Marie Greene, 56, were found in their burned home last Thursday evening, October 28, at 3063 Shorecrest Drive, on Big Whitefish Lake, in Pierson Township. The Howard City Fire Department and Montcalm County EMS responded to the scene about 11:18 p.m. and reported finding the two bodies inside the house. The four-bedroom, 20-year-old lakefront home was for sale for $625,000.

According to Montcalm County Sheriff Bill Barnwell, the two victims were living at the home when the fire started, but did not die as a result of the fire. Police are not releasing the method of death at this time.

    I lived in the Cedar Area unitl I was 18. I left 13 years ago, and things like this never used to happen there. I read these things and am in dis-belief at what our little community has become. It is sad, things like this used to only happen in Grand Rapids.
