LUCAS, Iowa (AP) — State and local authorities are investigating the deaths of a man and woman inside their home in the south-central Iowa community of Lucas.
Lucas County deputies were sent to the home Monday to check a report of a shooting. Deputies found the bodies inside.
The two have been identified as 64-year-old Julie Dawson and her husband, 66-year-old Craig Dawson.
Autopsies were ordered. Authorities suspect the two died as a result of a murder-suicide.
Des Moines police say Craig Dawson retired in 2007 after 33 years on the force.
