The two people found dead Thursday inside a Meridian home after what police suspect was a murder-suicide have been identified by the Ada County Coroner’s Office.

The bodies of a 46-year-old man, identified on Monday as Daniel Jonathan Cobb, and a 36-year-old woman, identified as Crystal Dena Wilson, were discovered in the master bedroom of a house in the 2200 block of Horse Creek Court, the Meridian Police Department said Friday. Police were responding to a request for a welfare check on a friend who had not come to work.

The coroner’s office said Wilson died by a single gunshot wound to the head. Cobb died of a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Police say initial evidence indicates that Cobb shot Wilson and then turned the gun on himself.
