No Motive In FDL County Murder Suicide

03-Oct-2017

The motive for a murder-suicide involving a 62-year-old Town of Empire man and his 27-year-old disabled daughter may never be completely clear. Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Captain Ryan Waldschmidt says they found no note or evidence in the residence of Dr. Mark Whitmore and his daughter Julia Whitmore. Family members, co-workers and friends of Dr. Whitmore were interviewed and none of them could provide information leading to a solid motive. Dr. Whitmore strangled his daughter then inflicted a fatal knife wound to himself.  Waldschmidt says it is a tragedy all the way around. Julia was wheelchair bound and required constant care. A home health nurse discovered her body last Friday morning, which led to the discovery of Dr. Whitmore’s body as well.
