Police have said that the 53 year old grandmother's disappearance is highly suspicious. Although there were no signs of foul play in her car that was later located, detectives fear that Renee was the victim of something criminal.
The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety says officers responded to Banbury Rd. near Portage St. around 12:30pm Monday, on a shots fired call; gunfire was even heard by dispatchers as they were on the line.
A total of 25 public safety officers with 4 different fire apparatus battled the fire for approximately 4 hours. Heavy equipment also had to be brought in to access hot spots within the remains of the building.
