CALHOUN COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) – West Virginia State Police troopers are investigating an apparent murder-suicide that happened Tuesday in Calhoun County.

Investigators say Margaret Osborn, 77, was found dead inside the home and Thomas Cain, 55, was found deceased next to the driveway near the home. The incident happened in the 300 block of Mount Run Road Rosedale, and the bodies were found about 8 a.m.

Troopers say it appears Cain shot Osborn inside the home and then went outside and shot himself. Both bodies were taken to the Office of Chief Medical Examiner for autopsies.

Investigators say there isn’t a clear motive and that Osborn and Cain lived in the same home.
