Casper Police Believe Couple’s Death Was Murder-Suicide

Rich Denison, Townsquare Media

Police say they believe the deaths of a Casper couple were the result of a murder-suicide.  The bodies of 60-year-old Walt McMillin and his 55-year-old wife Jodi were discovered around 8:30 a.m. Thursday.  Investigators say someone from Walt McMillan’s place of employment called police after he failed to show up for work at the Salvation Army.

The bodies were found in the living room of the couple’s home on the 400 block of West 12th.  Police say both had died from gunshot wounds to the head from a .38 caliber revolver.  Officials believe the shooting happened sometime Tuesday between 10:00 p.m. and midnight.

Police are still trying to determine who the shooter was.  According to investigators, alcohol use may have played a role in the deadly shooting.  Autopsies are planned this weekend.

Thursday’s investigation took place near a number of Natrona County schools.  District officials issued a phone-alert, notifying parents that there was no danger to students, and schools were not placed on lockdown.
