The incident was reported just after 1 a.m. Saturday. Units from the Plover Police Department, Wisconsin State Patrol and Portage County Coroner's Office went to the scene in central Wisconsin, and roads around the home were blocked off.

The Plover Police Department confirms that the DCI has taken over the investigation.
