Police say they are investigating an apparent murder-suicide at a home in Jacksonville. The home is located on Hargett Street, which is off Lejeune Boulevard near the Highway 17 Bypass. Jacksonville Police received a call just after 12:30 p.m.

Captain Houston said police went to the home after they received a call from a concerned parent.  When no one answered the door, police decided to enter the home.  That's when the bodies were discovered.

"We appreciate the cooperation and assistance of the Naval Criminal Investigative Services", stated Captain Billy Houston, who leads the agency's Investigative Services Division.

Bradford Maynard lives nearby.  Maynard said the couple welcomed him into the neighborhood three months ago.  Maynard said they seemed like good, level-headed people.
