WACO (July 25, 2013)—Police Thursday identified the man and woman found shot to death in an apartment in Waco as Michael Steve Sheppard, 60 and his wife, Deborah Kay, 59.
A family member found the bodies at around 8 p.m. Wednesday after going to check on the couple at the apartment at 2005 Austin Ave., Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said Thursday.
Both victims had been shot and a handgun was recovered at the scene, Swanton said.
“At this early point in the investigation it appears to be a murder-suicide,” Swanton said Thursday.
“Investigators believe their deaths were very recent,” he said.
Autopsies were ordered.
