At 6:12 pm on July 18 officers were dispatched to the 2200 block of Jewel Street for a suspicious situation. The adult female resident at a house in that location arrived home and after a cursory search could not locate her 80 year-old husband. The female saw blood on the carpet so she called police.
Officers arrived and during a search of the house located a deceased male in the house. Officers learned the female and male were husband and wife. Officers learned the couple’s pickup truck was stolen from their house. Based on what the officers learned they called detectives to continue the investigation.
