Des Moines police investigating murder-suicide

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Des Moines police say they're investigating an apparent murder-suicide of a man and a woman.

Police say they were called Monday morning to a home in northeast Des Moines after a woman stopped by to check on a friend, who hadn't shown up for work.

The woman found a back door ajar and because she felt uncomfortable, called police.

Officers went inside and found a 48-year-old woman and 49-year-old man dead. Police say it was an apparent murder-suicide.

Police are withholding the names of those killed until relatives can be notified.
