"KENOSHA, WI — Police have identified the elderly couple found dead in a car in a local cemetery Saturday, confirming it was a murder-suicide.
"Ronald and Nancy Meyers of Kenosha were found found Saturday morning at St. George Cemetery, 2909 Sheridan Road.
"Kenosha Police Chief John Morrissey said Sunday that the couple left “several notes and instructions” about the planned murder-suicide pact.
"`It’s one of those tragedies where one individual was sick, and the other said they couldn’t live without them,` he said. `They made a pact, if you will.`
"Ronald, 80, and Nancy, 78, each died of a single gunshot wound to the head.
"Morrissey said notes were found in both the car and the couple’s Pershing Boulevard home.
"`They had planned this out,` he said.
"While the investigation into the deaths isn’t officially closed, Morrissey said it’s just a matter of paperwork and formalities at this point.
"`It will stay open until the final autopsy,` he said. `But there is nothing we’re looking for. It was very well laid out for us. There’s no reason whatsoever to believe otherwise.`
"A cemetery maintenance worker discovered the bodies shortly after 7 a.m. Saturday."
