Homosassa, Florida -- Citrus County Sheriff's detectives say an elderly couple in their 80's died from an apparent murder-suicide in Sugarmill Woods Wednesday night.
A friend was with the couple at their home on Pine Street when the shooting occurred. The woman told deputies she was over at Rose and Ernest Geisert's home to help one of them who had fallen earlier when she heard muffled bangs.
She thought one of them had fallen again but when she went to the bathroom to check on them, she found them lying on the bathroom floor with a large amount blood around them. She then ran to a neighbor's house and called police.
An exact cause of death will be determined after an autopsy has been conducted.
