Autopsies will be performed on the bodies
of a husband and wife who were found dead
yesterday (Monday) afternoon on their
property in rural Crawford County.
Crawford County authorities were called
to a home along County-X in the Town of
Clayton, after the body of a 70-year-old
man who had been shot was found in the
driveway. Sheriff’s deputies then searched
the home on the property and found the
body of a 68-year-old woman, who had also
been shot. Sheriff Dale McCullick says it
appears to be a murder-suicide, that the
man shot his wife and then shot himself.
Authorities feel this is an isolated incident
and there’s no threat to the public.
Names aren’t being released until their
families are contacted.
