In the early morning hours of August 7th, 1991, an unknown suspect entered the residence of 120 N. 11 Mile Rd. located in Midland County's Lee Township and assaulted Mrs. Diane Ross. She later died as a result of the injuries she suffered during the assault. This crime was particularly heinous in that Mrs. Ross had mobility issues and was unable to escape her attacker.
This assault was witnessed by a young relative of Mrs. Ross, who described the suspect as being a man that was wearing a mask and had on dark clothing. The suspect fled the scene after committing the crime. The reason for the assault is unknown, although it is a possibility that Mrs. Ross knew her attacker or that he had been to the home on a prior occasion.
