Police think Highland man killed wife, then self




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        LIBERTY TOWNSHIP — The shooting deaths of an estranged Highland County couple whose bodies were discovered Monday are being investigated as a murder-suicide.

        The bodies of Allen D. “Chuck” Gibson, 41, of the 300 block of Bigelow Street and Roseann E. Gibson, 38, of the 5700 block of U.S. 50, were found by a neighbor at 5:39 a.m. in Mrs. Gibson's residence, Highland County Sheriff Ronald D. Ward said.

        The couple were divorcing.

        Both died as a result of gunshot wounds to the head, Sheriff Ward said. It appears — based on evidence from the scene — that Mr. Gibson went to his wife's residence Sunday evening and killed her before turning the gun on himself.

        The bodies were taken to the Montgomery County morgue for autopsies. The case remains under investigation by the sheriff's department and the Bureau of Criminal Investigation & Identification in London, Ohio.
