HOMOSASSA, Fla - Citrus County deputies say they are investigating what appears to be a murder-suicide in the Sugarmill Woods area of Homosassa.
It occurred Wednesday night around 9 p.m. at 52 Pine Street in Homosassa.
According to deputies, they found Rose Geisert and Ernest Geisert on the bathroom floor with apparent gunshot wounds. Both were in their 80s. Deputies say they found a firearm under Ernest's body.
Deputies on the scene say a friend who was already inside the residence helping one of the descendants from an apparent fall earlier heard muffled bangs which she thought was possibly Mrs. Geisert falling again.
The friend, according to deputies, went into the bathroom to check on the couple and found them lying on the bathroom floor with a large amount of blood around them. She ran to the next door neighbor's house to call 911, deputies said.
Investigators are waiting on the completion of the autopsies before they release any new information.
