Husband and Wife located Inside Residence in Highlands Neighborhood
On April 16th at approximately 11:00am, Kirkland Police responded to a private residence in the 10300 block of 113th Ct. NE. on a report of a deceased male. The male was discovered by a family member who had not heard from the man and had come by to check on him.
Kirkland Police arrived at the residence and located a male in his sixties inside the garage deceased from apparent self-inflicted injuries. Police then checked the residence and located a female in her sixties, believed to be the male’s wife, deceased in the kitchen.
