It?s a sad story for one Leon County family who lost two elderly this past week.
In what authorities are calling a possible murder/suicide, a husband and wife both died from gunshot wounds at their home on Wednesday, July 18th.
C.W. and Patricia Guiles, who were both in their 80s, were found by their children late Wednesday afternoon at their home near the intersection of FM 977 and FM 3 northwest of the Hilltop Lakes community.
According to investigators, C.W. shot and killed his wife before shooting himself.
Patricia was pronounced dead at the scene. C.W. was life flighted to a hospital where he died later Wednesday night.
?Evidently, there were medical problems, and they both appeared as though they were tired of living,? Leon County Sheriff Jerry Wakefield said. ?It looked like he shot her, and then shot himself.?
