Crawford Co. authorities release names of murder/suicide victims

Posted: Updated:
CLAYTON TOWNSHIP (WKOW) -- Crawford County authorities have now released the names of the murder/suicide victims in Clayton Township.

Investigators say 70-year-old Robert Reagan shot and killed his wife, 68-year-old Karen, inside their home.  She may have been sleeping at the time.  A short time later, Robert walked out to their driveway, taking his own life.

Authorities are looking into the possibility that Karen had recently received some troubling news regarding her health.  That may be the reason this tragic event took place.  Friends of the couple told us that Robert had stated that he couldn’t live if anything ever happened to Karen.        

The investigation continues.
