CUDAHY, Wis. (AP) - Police have released the names of a father and his young daughter who died in what they’re calling a murder-suicide in Cudahy on New Year’s Day.

Police responded to their home after a family member called for help early Friday. Police found 27-year-old Brett Hartman dead of a gunshot wound. His 2-year-old daughter, Skylar Hartman, was also shot. She died later at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office conducted autopsies Saturday.

Police have not released details on what led to the incident. The investigation is continuing.

The girl’s cousin, Kaitlin Monroe, tells WISN-TV that Skylar was just days away from turning three. She says the family doesn’t get why Hartman killed her.
