Law enforcement officials were dispatched to a possible burglary Tuesday night. When they arrived, a deputy found Nedra and Jim Lemke’s bodies in the driveway.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Division of Criminal Investigation, the deputy was then shot at from the home. He returned fire before seeing black smoke coming from the house, which later went up in flames.

According to their father’s obituary, Nedra Lemke was Andreson’s sister. The house was their late father’s home.

The Lemke’s pastor said the two were “authentic, genuine people” who led Sunday school at Faith Community Church for the last 20 years. 

The Facebook post said Anderson is 6-feet tall and weighs about 200 pounds. He has blue eyes and balding brown hair.

Anyone who sees Anderson is asked to not approach him and immediately contact law enforcement at 920-674-7310.
