OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. (WZZM)- An Ottawa County cold case team is increasing its efforts investigating a double murder from 1987. 

Gail and Rick Brink were found shot to death at their home in Park Township.  Gail was found shot in her bed, her husband was dead in his truck.

In a WZZM 13 report from November 1987, an Ottawa County Sheriff Detective shared his insight on the murder. Lt. Lee Posma said, "It appears right now we just have a cold blooded type homicide.  I think he knew who he was after, yes.  Shooting a person several times such as he did, I think it was very intentional."

The case has moved to Ottawa County's cold case team's priority spot and two senior detectives are working full-time on the case.
