IOSCO COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Oscoda Township Police said officers were sent to a residence on Monday for a welfare check after family members reported that they hadn't heard from a man for five days.

Officers arrived at the home at 8205 A. Florida in Iosco County's Oscoda Township around 6:30 p.m. to check on 47-year-old Kenneth Ellis Neal.

When police arrived, they discovered two suspected bullet holes in the upstairs window. Further investigation led officers to Neal's body. Initial examination revealed that Neal sustained a fatal gunshot wound.

Officers then discovered Neal's son, Hunter Mark-Purdy Neal, 18, dead from what is believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The Michigan State Police forensic lab out of Grayling was called in to help examine the scene.

Oscoda Township Police said so far all signs point to a "murder-suicide" as the cause of deaths. Their investigation remains open pending autopsy and forensic results. Police are asking that anyone with information on the case to contact them at 989-739-9113.
