GRAHAM, Wash. — Deputies are investigating an apparent murder-suicide after two people were found dead inside a home Thursday afternoon in Graham.

Pierce County deputies were called to a home on 242nd Street East near 94th Avenue East.

When deputies arrived at the home, they found two people dead inside.

Deputies said the victims, a 68-year-old man and a 75-year-old woman, were roommates.

The man reportedly killed the woman and then himself, according to deputies. She reportedly was in the process of evicting the man.

At 2:44 p.m., investigators were notified after one of the roommate’s friends stopped by the home and discovered both bodies.

Sergeant Darren Moss Jr. with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said, “A friend had come by the residence to check on his friend and found him deceased inside and then found a woman deceased inside as well.”

A gun was found inside the home.

Detectives will remain at the scene overnight to collect evidence and do not believe there are any outstanding suspects, Moss said.
