*** UPDATE ***
Expanding upon what was previously released, responding officers located a critically injured adult female and a seriously injured adult male when they arrived on scene. First responders initiated lifesaving efforts, and both wounded subjects were transported to an area hospital for treatment. Tragically, the female did not survive her injuries.
Detectives are continuing to investigate; however, they have established that the subjects were married, and the female’s death is being investigated as a homicide. The male’s injuries are believed to be self-inflicted.
CPD is in the process of completing next-of-kin notifications, so identifications are not available at this time.
There are no outstanding suspects. Additional information will be released when appropriate.
