Elderly Murder/Suicide In Worthington

May 3, 2014, 12:40 PM

Elderly Murder/Suicide In Worthington
WORTHINGTON, MN -

On Friday around 9:55 p.m. Worthington Police responded to a call of gunshots from Crossroads Care Center.

Upon arrival police discovered in a private room 87-year-old George Doust on the bed with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head and 86-year-old Doris Doust lying on an adjacent bed with a gunshot wound to her head.

A handgun was found in the room.

Police, Deputies and ambulance personnel performed first aid.

Both were transported to Worthington Regional Medical Center and then to Sioux Falls where they were pronounced dead.

George Doust was a Worthington resident and Doris Doust was living at Crossroads Care Center.

Administrator Barb Atchison says the couple was friendly to staff during Doris' brief stay at the care center, which she says makes what happened even more shocking.

"They were very easy going. She had just been a resident here for a couple weeks. Her husband seemed very devoted to her and actually spent a lot of time with her. So there was no reason for us to suspect that he was unhappy in any way, so it came as a total shock to all of us," Crossroads Care Center Administrator Barb Atchison said.

Atchison says the care center is going about its daily routine today, but she says a lot of workers feel numb after what happened last night.
