UPDATE: Police investigate suspected homicide

TRAVERSE CITY — Word of a suspected homicide in a Barlow Street home percolated through an east Traverse City neighborhood as authorities investigated the scene.

Mike Wolf first noticed a pair of Traverse City Police Department cars parked outside a neighbor’s home when he went to fetch the Sunday paper at about 6:30 a.m.

Hours later, Cymantha Kostecki drove past the scene, complete with police tape, police cars and a mobile Michigan State Police crime scene investigation laboratory. She returned to her nearby home to find a message from her sister detailing a suspected slaying inside the taped-off home, but no news coverage of the incident.

The message left Kostecki with lingering concern about the safety of her neighborhood.

“OK, well, did something happen and someone’s on the run?” she said.
