Baker Police investigating murder-suicide involving an elderly couple
BAKER - Baker Police are investigating a reported murder-suicide involving a 90, and 92-year-old couple.
Around 9 Saturday morning, officers received a call and arrived to the 3800 block of Epperson street in Baker. No one responded when they knocked, so officers forced their way inside where the couple was found dead.
The Baker Police Chief said they did find a note inside.
"Ever since this pandemic, and even before, but more so now we have to be diligent with checking on our neighbors, seniors, parents and grandparents," said Chief Carl Dunn. "This strikes me to my heart because it reminds me of my parents and grandparents."
This is a developing story.
