Police say a Syracuse couple died in a murder-suicide Monday at their home.
Gary Lee Lucero, 41, and Jessica A. Lucero, 39, were found in a home near 900 South and 2100 West about 8 a.m. A relative had called police to report that she had looked in a window of the house and could see Gary Lucero's body on a chair, said Syracuse police Lt. Tracy Jensen.
Jensen would not confirm or deny reports that one of the Luceros' children was at home at the time of his parents' deaths. Jensen also would not disclose the suspected cause of the deaths, saying officers were waiting for an autopsy to confirm evidence at the scene. Investigators believe Gary Lucero killed his wife and then himself.
