No-Show Prompts Gruesome Welfare Check

"LAS VEGAS, NV — Police are investigating a murder/suicide after they discovered two bodies on Tuesday night inside a home near Valley View and Oakey.

"Around 7:10 p.m., patrol officers responded to a residence located on the 2100 block of Plaza Del Padre to conduct a welfare check.

"A co-worker reported the resident did not show up for work for several days and had not contacted the employer.

"Officers entered the residence and located a deceased male and female who suffered apparent gunshot wounds. Both were in their 60's.

"The preliminary investigation indicated the two victims were living together and were involved in a domestic relationship. It appears the male shot the female victim and then shot himself.

"The Clark County Coroner's Office has identified the male as 69-year-old Robert Hender of Las Vegas. The female has not been identified."
