Dane County Sheriff’s Department has identified the couple found dead in a town of Bristol home Tuesday afternoon.

They have been identified as Kevin S. Herskind, 53, and Julie A. L. Herskind, 52. Authorities have determined that Kevin Herskind fatally shot his wife Julie Herskind and then committed suicide. 

Kevin Herskind also fatally shot a dog belonging to the couple. Another small dog and three cats were removed from the home on County Highway N by an animal control officer.

It’s unclear at this point what led up to the violence, but detectives will continue to investigate the incident, according to the sheriff’s department.

Dane County deputies discovered Herskind and his wife after they were called to the scene when an employer became concerned when an employee did not show up for work as expected.
