This story has been updated after a press release from Detective Sgt. Steve Sitzes of the Washington Police Department Monday, Jan. 11.
Shortly before 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 9, members of the Franklin County SWAT team entered a home in the 800 block of Louis Street in Washington.
Investigators are looking into the deaths of a man and woman found at the scene. The individuals have been identified as Danny L. Peroutka, 32, and Carey A. Boyster, 36, both of Washington. The SWAT team was called to clear the home as a precaution.
The incident began when Boyster was found collapsed in a neighbor’s driveway south of the residence. Law enforcement followed a trail of blood to the rear of the home where the incident occurred.
After the home was cleared by SWAT, Peroutka was found to be deceased in the home along with his and Boyster's 13-month-old child, who was unharmed.
The child was taken into protective custody at the scene, Sitzes said. As of Monday the department stated the child was in the care of family members.
Sitzes said in the press release investigators believe the situation was the result of a domestic incident between Peroutka and Boyster and no other persons have been found to be involved.
The Peroutka and Boyster were known to each other and have a history with law enforcement in the area, according to Sitzes.
Officers with the Sheriff’s Department and the Washington Police Department had been dispatched to the scene after a caller reported an unidentified subject was in the driveway and bloodied.
When officers arrived at the scene, they began evacuating nearby homes prior to the deployment of the SWAT team.
