According to a police report, officers visited the complex to conduct “a welfare check” of the couple. One neighbor said officers were also looking for a little girl who had been spotted outside the apartments.

When police stepped inside the couple’s apartment, they found the bodies, authorities said.

I find it a waste of

I find it a waste of resources for our state crime labs to do autopsies for cases such as this. If the police have investigated and determined that it was a murder-suicide and it's obvious the cause of death is gunshot wounds, what exactly are they looking for in the autopsies? It's a waste of what little money the state of Georgia has. And it's just more of a burden on our already over worked crime lab employees.
