Elderly Couple Found Dead

Albuquerque police found an elderly couple dead in an apparent murder-suicide in southeast Albuquerque Wednesday morning, according to Albuquerque Police Department spokesman Tanner Tixier. A family member called police and said a man and a woman, both in their 80s to 90s, were dead inside a home at 224 Richmond DR SE, Tixier said. The bodies had been inside the house, which is two blocks south of the Nob Hill commercial district, for more than an hour before they were found, according to Tixier. Police haven’t official confirmed the cause of death, but a family member told police that the two were dead of a murder-suicide and evidence at the scene appears to support that, Tixier said. He said the call came in as a shooting but would not confirm that a gun was used. Police are conducting a full homicide investigation, Tixier said.
