One person is dead and another is clinging to life after an apparent murder-attempted suicide in Muhlenberg County Wednesday afternoon.
State Police say troopers responded to a possible death located off Kentucky Highway 175 a half mile north of KY 70 around 2pm. At the scene, police found a car off the road in a tree line with an individual inside the vehicle shot to death.
In the woods approximately one mile from the vehicle, police found another person with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. That person was taken by helicopter to St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville for treatment.
State Police are continuing the investigation and the names of the two individuals have not been released.
