Popular Radio Host, Husband Found Dead in Michigan Home in Suspected Murder-Suicide

A popular morning radio host was found dead in her Michigan home along with her husband in what authorities believe was a murder-suicide.

Denise Bohn-Stewart and her husband Eric Stewart were both found dead inside their Berrien County, Michigan home early Tuesday morning, police said. 

Investigators told NBC affiliate WNDU Bohn-Stewart was found shot multiple times in an upstairs bedroom. Eric Stewart was located in the basement of the home.

Police arrived at the scene just after 6:30 a.m. where they reportedly found the couple’s three children, ages 8, 9, and 10, waiting at the front door. One of the children had called 911. 

Authorities said the children were not injured in the incident. 

A preliminary investigation indicated Eric Stewart fatally shot his wife before he shot himself, police said. 

Bohn-Stewart was a morning radio host for 98.3 The Coast. She was also previously a news reporter and anchor for WSBT-TV in South Bend.

The radio station said in a statement on Facebook Tuesday “we have lost a member of our family at Mid-West Family Broadcasting.”

Bohn-Stewart was a breast cancer survivor, wife, and mother of three, according to her bio on the Susan G. Komen Michigan website, where she was listed as development director.

Autopsties for the pair are scheduled to take place Wednesday.
