Elderly Couple Found Dead In Murder-Suicide
It’s always so unfortunate that these couples couldn’t work out whatever issues they had without things turning violent.
According to Boston Globe:
A relative arrived at the yellow home on Dunbar Road to check on the elderly couple who live there early Tuesday and found them dead in an apparent murder-suicide, authorities said.
Elizabeth A. Coyne, 81, and her husband, Donald P. Coyne, 83, suffered injuries “consistent with gunshot wounds,” Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey’s office said in a statement.
A .25 caliber Walther pistol that authorities said they believe Donald Coyne owned was found at his side when they were discovered about 7:12 a.m.
David Traub, Morrissey’s spokesman, declined to say how many times either person was shot or where.
He said officials were working to determine what may have touched off a violent altercation between the couple.
“There is no known history of domestic violence,” the statement said.
