Husband and wife found dead in Bullitt County

Posted: Updated:

BULLITT COUNTY, Ky. (WDRB) – The Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a double fatal shooting.

Investigators were called to Cow Branch Road just off Highway 44 on Monday afternoon just before 2:00 p.m.

"Very, very heartbroken but they all are doing well," said Bullitt County Deputy Coroner Glenda Heath.

Heath spent the afternoon with family members and says all of them are still in shock and have no idea why this happened.

"They are both in their late 50s early 60s," said Heath. "There is nothing that the family can think of that has prompted this."

Lt. Mike Murdoch says a relative who went to the home, found the husband and wife shot to death.

Their names aren't being released until all family members have been notified.

"I didn't hear anything," said Tiffany Elliott who lives right next door. "They were just a nice couple from what I got from them."

She and her husband share a driveway with the couple and say they've been reaching out to family members who've been showing up all day.

"They came over here, they were upset you know,” said Elliott. “They didn't really want to tell me much. I don't know them personally, I just offered them some drinks because they've been sitting out here all day and haven't been allowed in."

The Bullitt County Sheriff's Office says it is not looking for any suspects because it does not believe that anyone else was involved.
