Austin police said they are investigating the death of a couple in their 70s as a murder-suicide.
Police believe that Ernest Locker Jr., 76, shot and killed Kathryn Locker, 76, before he shot and killed himself, police said. They were found dead in their bed at their home at 5604 Palisade Court.
Their daughter called 911 at 11:24 p.m. Tuesday because she hadn’t heard from her parents since Sunday and was concerned about them, police said. Officers found the Lockers inside, and they were pronounced dead at 11:40 p.m.
Anyone with any additional information should call the Austin police homicide tip line at 512-477-3588.
