The investigation found that 22-year-old Mason Alrik Cederwall and 30-year-old Amy Lynn Manna — who lived in the residence — were shot to death. The third person found dead in the home was identified as 30-year-old Austin James Bernhard, also from Bancroft. Bernhard died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The investigation determined that Bernhard was Manna’s ex-boyfriend and it also discovered that he had been arrested on July 4th on charges of assault and burglary involving Cedarwall and Manna.
