MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- Records obtained by NBC15 show law enforcement responded to the home of an apparent murder-suicide in Madison 39 times in five years.

The records show calls dating back to December 18, 2011.

Authorities were called to the Kanazawa Circle home twice for domestic disturbances. They were called once in December of 2011 and another time in December 2014.

Police responded to the home Tuesday night after a middle-school aged boy found the bodies of a a 39-year-old man and 19-year-old woman.

Authorities said it appears the man shot his stepdaughter before taking his own life.

Boys and Girls Club of Dane County CEO, Michael Johnson tells NBC15 the two involved in the incident are former La Follette student Tuneija Tornai-Jackson and her stepfather Michael Jackson.

Neighbors describe the community as tight-knit with many of them being acquainted with the family.

A group of mothers in the neighborhood have come together to start a fundraising campaign for the family.
