The Camden County Sheriff's Office says two people found dead in a home in Climax Springs appear to be the victims of a murder-suicide.
According to a news release from the department, their bodies were found in the 1200 block of Sunset Shores Lane around 2pm on Thursday.
Someone went to check on them after not hearing from their friend since Wednesday.
Tonight detectives identified the victims as 57 year old William J Goodack Jr, and his wife, 65 year old Linda K Goodack. Authorities say they each sustained a single gunshot wound to the head.
The bodies were transported to Springfield, Missouri for autopsy, which is standard procedure in any homicide case.
The next of kin was notified and funeral arrangements are pending.
