Police ID man, woman found dead inside Walworth County home

DELAVAN, Wis. - Officials have identified the man and woman found dead inside a Walworth County home this week. 

The Delavan Police Department said 29-year-old Jenna M. Brovold, of Darien, died by homicide.

The 29-year-old man found dead inside the home, Casey J. DePriest, died by suicide, the department said. 

Multiple area law enforcement resources including the Milwaukee FBI, Lake Geneva police drone, the state Department of Natural Resources and EMS departments were sent to the residence. Delavan police said that after hours of attempting to negotiate, SWAT team members breached a door and saw the bodies of a man and woman inside.

A 26-year-old man was found injured with a gunshot wound to his shoulder when officers arrived at the home Monday night. Police said Thursday that he is related to Brovold, and is considered a victim of attempted homicide. He's been released from the hospital and is recovering from his injuries. 

Police said Brovold and DePriest had lived together at the home in Darien before their relationship recently ended. 

"We have determined what has occurred. What will take time is why it took place," the police department wrote in a release Thursday. 

Officials said it will be months before the police department will receive official results of the autopsies, forensic examination of electronic devices and investigative reports are finished. 

"Our thoughts remain with the affected families," the police department wrote.
