The man police in Wisconsin were seeking in connection with four murders was found dead yesterday morning inside an SUV.
Tyrone Adair, 38, of Middleton, Wisconsin, died of a gunshot wound, Dane County Coroner Raymond Wosepka said.
On Friday, Adair was charged with two counts of first-degree homicide in the deaths of Tracy Judd, 33, and 23-month-old Deja Adair.
He was also a “person of interest” in the fatal shooting of Amber Weigel, 25, and two-year-old Neveah Weigel-Adair.
The search for Adair began Thursday evening, when Madison police were called to a duplex on the city’s southwest side.
Officers found Weigel and Neveah shot in a vehicle in the garage. About two hours later, police found Adair’s car in a parking lot next to a Middleton bar. They discovered Judd and Deja’s bodies in the trunk.
Adair’s grandmother, Dorothy Carter, said Adair had lost his job at Clack Corp.
“He’s always been a good guy,” Carter said, fighting back tears. “He was depressed. I know that’s no excuse, but that’s what happened.”
Peter Chermak, Clack’s vice president and CEO, said that Adair last worked for the company six months ago.
