Family still searching for answers in cold case


A homicide that went unsolved.. and loved ones seeking justice.

Three years ago today, someone murdered Mathew Douglas Straub.

He was 39 years old when Lansing police responded to a breaking and entering complaint in the 600 block of Fenton Street in April of 2015.

They found Straub dead in his home. He had been shot.

Three years later, police are still looking for the person who killed him.

According to family members, police do not believe the incident was random and there is a $1,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest.

Tonight, Straub’s family members hope to keep his case alive.

They plan to hold a candlelight prayer vigil and balloon launch outside his home to honor his life and to show support for his widow and five children. But above all, prove they haven’t forgotten.

The vigil will take place in the parking lot of Maple Hill School in Lansing at 7pm tonight.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
