"PALM HARBOR, FL — The deaths of a husband and wife found in a Palm Harbor home are being investigated as a murder-suicide, Pinellas County Sheriff's Office deputies said.
"The bodies of Donalyn Clark Walsh, 53, and Stephen Douglas Walsh, 58, were found at their home at 1909 Forest View Drive about 11:50 a.m. today, according to a report.
"Detectives said the bodies were found by the couple's adult children, who were concerned about the well being of their parents, having not heard from them since Sunday.
"Deputies responded to the home Sunday on a family trouble call after receiving a report of the Walshes arguing, the report said.
"While deputies were on scene, Donalyn Walsh left the residence. Detectives say she returned home later Sunday evening.
"According to investigators, shortly after that Stephen Walsh shot Donalyn Walsh, then turned the gun, a 40 caliber semi automatic, on himself.
"The investigation is continuing."
