KSP investigating deaths of Providence couple

PROVIDENCE, Ky. (WFIE) - A death investigation is underway in Webster County.

According to Kentucky State Police, troopers received a call around 11:16 p.m. on Wednesday from the Webster County Sheriff’s Office about a shooting at a home on Lutontown Lisman Road. Troopers say that police found 41-year-old Dana Ensing and her 42-year-old husband, Kyle Ensing, dead inside the home.

Troopers say the preliminary investigation shows that the couple appeared to have suffered gunshot wounds.

“Techniques used at the scene that we just had determination that presently it appeared that he had shot his wife then shot himself,” Trooper Rob Austin, public information officer for KSP Post 2 said.

The Ensing’s home is located in a rural area of Webster County.

“Webster County is a fairly quiet community," Austin said. “It’s a lot of farming in that community.”

A neighbor who lives down the road from the Ensing family says he didn’t hear or see anything out of the ordinary on Wednesday night.

“I don’t know if there’s anything specifically different about this instance," Austin said. “It’s always sad, a tragedy anytime anyone loses their life. You’re looking at a married couple who has friends, family, and now they’re both going to be missed dearly I’m sure.”

The investigation is currently ongoing.

The Webster County Coroner’s Office says autopsies were performed on Thursday. We are still waiting on those results.
