LAWRENCE COUNTY, Mo. — Authorities in Lawrence County said they’re wrapping up their investigation into the deaths of two people just west of Miller after releasing new information Thursday.

The bodies of a man and woman were found inside a home on Monday after the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office were asked to make a welfare check. Within, they found both 55-year-old Caleb Kingsley, of Miller, and 43-year-old Linda Kennedy, of Chetopa, Kansas, deceased.

Kingsley was found to have suffered a single gun shot wound to the head while asleep in bed. Kennedy’s cause of death was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
