Names released in apparent murder-suicide


A man and woman are dead after an apparent murder-suicide in Daviess County, KY, deputies say.

Officials say they are 72-year-old Larry Russell Dorris and 74-year-old Gloria Dorris. 

The sheriff's office says deputies were called to a home in the 3100 block of Harness Loop, just outside the Owensboro city limits, around 9 a.m. Thursday morning for a welfare check after Gloria didn't show up to work.

We're told the bodies were found inside the home.

Deputies say the two used to be married to each other and it appeared that Larry killed Gloria before killing himself.

Detectives still don't know the exact time of the shooting.
