WARRINGTON, Pennsylvania — Authorities in suburban Philadelphia say a man and woman and their two dogs were found dead of gunshot wounds in an apparent murder-suicide.
Police in Bucks County were sent to the Warrington home shortly before 11:30 a.m. Saturday after a concerned friend said she hadn't talked to the woman for a few days.
Police said 56-year-old Mary Ellen Curry was found dead in the bathroom with gunshot wounds, at least one which was in her back.
They said 58-year-old Larry Rothenberger was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound in the bedroom.
Police said the mixed breed and Pomeranian dogs were found shot to death in the kitchen. Rothenberger's 40-caliber handgun was found at the scene.
Sgt. Ken Hawthorn called it "an isolated family issue that ended tragically."
