Suspect in Wisconsin killings found dead in SUV

By Calvin Palmer

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.
