SPRINGFIELD TWP, OH (FOX19) -

An apparent murder-suicide is being investigated after two people were found dead from gunshot wounds inside a Springfield Township home, say police. 

According to officers at the scene, Daniel Evans, 65, shot his wife, Cathy Evans, 65, who was suffering from Alzheimer's disease, before killing himself. 

"By all indications, this incident appears to be a murder-suicide," Authority Chief Rob Browder said. 

Reports reveal Danielle Evans was unable to reach her parents and responded to their home to discover a note on the front door advising to call 911 signed 'Dad.' 

Police said the bodies of the couple were discovered in their bed. 

Cathy had a single gunshot wound to the chest and Daniel had a single gunshot wound to the head, state official reports. 

Police initially responded to the Misty Hill home around 2:20 p.m. for reports of a person who was not breathing, according to dispatch. 

Family members advised Daniel was a devoted husband and the couple had been married for almost 45 years.
