An area couple was found dead in a Sands Street apartment in a murder-suicide on New Year’s Eve.

Officials said that the 43-year-old man and the 41-year-old woman, who had not been named as this paper went to press, were found dead in the apartment near Gold Street at 10:20 p.m. on December 31.

Both victims had gunshot wounds to their heads, officials said. The gun was found next to the man’s body, leaving investigators to believe that the male had shot his female friend before taking his own life.
