Sumpter Township police are searching for a man wanted in connection with a quadruple homicide that occurred on Saturday in Sumpter.

Sumpter police released information on Sunday morning about the incident in a Facebook post.

Police responded Saturday to a quadruple homicide at a house in the 24000 block of Martinsville Road.

Sumpter officers found two men and two women, all in their 30s, dead of apparent gunshot wounds.

A Crime Scene Response Team from the Michigan State Police Forensic Division was requested and arrived to assist police.

Detectives said they identified 37-year-old Raymond Lee Bailey of Sumpter Township, the ex-boyfriend of one of the women, as a suspect.

Police said they obtained information that he had fled north, possibly heading to the Upper Peninsula.

Police were told the suspect allegedly confessed to the killings to several people via telephone and texts.

Detectives were able to begin tracking him as he fled North and located his vehicle abandoned near Bay City.

“Sumpter police has worked through the night with authorities in that area to attempt to find him, and a statewide BOL is active. The search is ongoing,” a statement said.

Sumpter police ask anyone with information to contact the Sumpter Township Police Department detective bureau at 734-461-4833, option 4.
