2 dead in apparent murder-suicide, police say

Henderson Police investigated the death of a 55-year-old man and a 54-year-old woman Thursday in an apparent murder-suicide.

According to officers, the couple was found around 2:50 p.m. lying in the desert area near the intersection of East Larson Lane and Gilespie Street. A person walking by noticed the man lying on the ground next
to a silver Chevrolet Cruz.

The names of the couple will be released by the Clark County Coroner's Officer pending next of kin notification.
