May 3 2019

SEYMOUR, Wis. - On April 18, 2019, Seymour Police Department were dispatched to a residence in Seymour following a report of a disturbance. The initial responding officers attempted to make contact with anyone inside.


Assistance was requested from the Outagamie County Emergency Response Team. The Emergency Response Team took over operations and made entry to the residence. Upon entry three deceased subjects were located, one adult male and two small children.


While the investigation is still ongoing, currently the investigation has found that the two children died by homicide, and the deceased adult male died of a self-inflicted wound. Law enforcement also currently believes the mother of the children is not a suspect in this investigation.


Per the request of the Seymour Police Department, the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) is leading this investigation.


The investigation is ongoing and no further information is available currently.


Law enforcement recognizes that this event was a truly awful tragedy. Our sympathies go out to the mother of the children, the family, and the community.
