December 26, 2018

PLAINVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut are investigating whether the deaths of two brothers, whose bodies were discovered in an airport parking lot, was a murder-suicide.

In a written statement released Wednesday, Plainville Police Lt. Nicholas Mullins says an initial investigation shows 68-year-old Nils Anderson shot and killed his younger brother, 66-year-old Byron Anderson, before killing himself with the same handgun.

Both men are from Plainville.

Mullins says police have “no reason to believe anyone else was involved in this incident.”

Police were called Saturday morning to a parking lot at Robertson Airport in Plainville, a municipally owned airport that serves private, recreational and emergency aircraft, for a report of two bodies found in a vehicle.

Mullins says it was apparent the deaths were suspicious.
