Murder-suicide suspected in Chattaroy

Detectives are investigating the deaths of an elderly man and woman in Chattaroy as a murder-suicide, according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.

Their bodies were discovered today in a trailer in the 3100 block of East Chattaroy Road. Both are in their 70s.

Fire personnel found a body on the floor of the home after an out-of-sate relative called the sheriff’s office about 9:50 a.m. and asked that deputies check on the couple.

Fire crews left the home to wait for law enforcement after discovering the body.

“Names, cause of death, and manner of death will be provided after autopsy Monday,” sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Dave Reagan said in a news release.
