According to Jefferson County Sheriff's Office PIO Jacki Kelly, a likely murder-suicide was discovered yesterday on the 23000 block of Kiowa Road in Indian Hills, near the area captured in the graphic above (if you have problems seeing the image, click "View Larger Map"). Kelly says a male and a female, both 27, were renting the property, but they'd given their notice. Yesterday afternoon, the landlord was showing the home to a potential renter when he opened the door and found two dead bodies. The 911 call came in at about 3:35 p.m. I'm guessing the potential resident took a pass.
At this point, the Jefferson County Coroner's Office hasn't identified the man and woman pending notification of next-of-kin, several of whom are out of state. More information as it becomes available.
