Elderly couple die in murder-suicide

An eld­erly Bustleton man shot his wife fatally in the head be­fore turn­ing the gun on him­self in an ap­par­ent murder-sui­cide, Phil­adelphia po­lice say.

The couple’s 16-year-old grand­son made the grisly dis­cov­ery of the de­ceased couple at their home on North­east Av­en­ue, near Grant Av­en­ue, on June 22 at about 10:30 a.m. 

He had gone there to check on them re­portedly after tele­phone calls to the home had gone un­answered.

The fe­male vic­tim, 71-year-old Ju­dith Cabry, was in the kit­chen while her hus­band, Mi­chael Cabry, 74, was in a back­yard shed, po­lice said. A gun was found on the prop­erty.

Po­lice have not dis­closed what cir­cum­stances may have promp­ted the vi­ol­ence. ••
