Sheriff Kelly Hanson says deputies responded to a home on S. Caseville Road near Pigeon Monday morning around 9:30 where a family member found an elderly couple dead. Hanson said their preliminary investigation indicates that 87 year old James Sauer shot his 85 year old wife Margaret Sauer with a handgun and then took his own life. Sheriff Hanson said they learned the couple had had health issues. Hanson said the investigation is ongoing with autopsies to take place. An investigator from the Huron County Medical Examiner’s Office assisted at the scene.
