OAKLAND COUNTY, MI. (THECOUNT) — Dr. Calandra Green, of Pontiac, Michigan, the lead health officer with the Oakland County Health Division, has been identified as the victim in a Thursday Oakland County murder-suicide.
Green’s husband, Charles Green, is believed to be the suspect in the Thursday double-murder.
According to reports, family members conducted a welfare check at the home of 50-year-old Green after she failed to arrive at work on Thursday. At some point, family members contacted police who responded to find the couple deceased.
“Family members went to the home and started to walk into the house,” said Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard. “It didn’t look right, and they smartly backed out and called 911. We immediately responded, made entry into the home, and found two individuals deceased.”
“It appears that our female is the victim and a male individual was the perpetrator, but that’s still early,” Bouchard said.
The health department issued the following statement:
“Our hearts are shattered at the news of the passing of our colleague and esteemed Health Officer, Dr. Calandra Green. Words cannot express how devastating this news is to our Oakland County family.
Calandra was a beloved member of our team and a light to all who had the privilege to know and love her.
We are closing the North Oakland County Health Clinics and the South Oakland County Health Clinic to the public on Friday, May 12, to allow our employees time to grieve and seek support from each other and counselors as they process this devastating news.”
