Check on the residents calls

Police get those calls from time to time. Some relative or close friend cannot make contact with someone over a period of time, they may contact police and ask them to check the home.

When police  arrive, they may be greeted politely, with simles and thanked for checking and sent on their way. Or they may be greeted with frowns and/or curses. But the worst of all are when they don’t receive a response.


Saturday police were asked to check a residence. When they arrived there was no response at the door. So they forced entry.

Inside the home they found Gary Keith Goodmon, 50, and his wife Lorrein Rachel Goodmon, 40, both dead from gunshot wounds to the head.

Police believe the husband shot the wife, then turned the gun on himself.

The couple were thought to be planning to get a divorce. And reportedly they had a history of domestic disputes.       


The coroner believes that Lorrein Goodmon may have been dead for 36 to 48 hours before the bodies were found. Gary Goodmon was thought to have been dead 12 to 24 hrs. The coroner believes that Lorrein Goodmon may have been sleeping prior to her death.
