NILES, Mich. -- Police are seeking information from the public related to the double homicide of a couple Friday morning.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen someone in the area of Yankee Street or Carberry Road between 6:30 and 8:30 a.m. Friday to "recall any person along the roadway near this location," especially if that person is a white man, between 20 and 30 years old with brown hair and a medium build, according to a press release from Michigan State Police.

The bodies of Carolyn Tarwacki, 39, and her husband, 42-year-old John Tarwacki, were found Friday in their home, 979 Carberry Road, Niles. Carolyn Tarwacki was a member of the Elkhart Municipal Band.

According to the release, detectives have followed up on more than 100 tips from the public and have eliminated several persons of interest.

Police said the suspect was on foot on Yankee Street east of Carberry Road Friday morning. The man may have been on foot or near a parked vehicle in the area.

Autopsies were completed on both victims at Blodgett Hospital in Grand Rapids, Mich., but police are not yet releasing the cause of death or the weapons used in the homicide.

Police said they are looking for a single assailant.
