Authorities Rule Deaths of Wyoming Couple as Homicide, Suicide
Two people who were found dead inside their Rock Springs home in December were determined to have died in a murder-suicide, according to authorities in southwestern Wyoming.
Whitney Sewell, 29, was determined to have died of a gunshot wound "as a result of homicide," according to a statement issued Friday by the Rock Springs Police Department.
Her husband, 26-year-old Hunter Sewell, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Investigators are not considering anyone else as a suspect in the case, police said.
Officers were called to the Sewell home in the 100 Block of Sherman Street for a report of a possible dead body Dec. 16 at roughly 9:30 a.m.
Memorial services for the pair took place Dec. 23.
The determinations regarding the deaths were made in conjunction with the Sweetwater County Coroner's Office.
Further details, including a motive, were not released.
