Double Homicide Reported in SW Missouri County
GALENA, Mo. (AP) - Stone County authorities are holding two male juveniles in the deaths of an elderly couple from Michigan.
Sheriff Doug Rader says his deputies found 70-year-old Paul Brooks and his wife, 69-year-old Margaret Brooks, dead Thursday night at a home in the Trace Hollow area, south of Table Rock Lake.
Rader says the couple was from Michigan but did not have a hometown. He declined to say how they were killed, except that they were not shot.
Rader said 16- and 15-year-old juveniles are being held awaiting formal charges. A neighbor who heard suspicious activity held the juveniles at gunpoint until officers arrived. Rader says the suspects are not from Missouri.
