HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Authorities have identified a Henderson woman who police say was shot dead by her husband in a murder-suicide over the weekend.
Clark County coroner's officials say 39-year-old Wendy Marie Whitmore was found dead of at her home on Saturday. Her 45-year-old husband, Wade Elliott Adams, was found dead in the home of an apparent overdose.
Henderson police say a passer-by called 911 around 11 a.m. after spotting Adams' daughter crying outside.
The daughter told responding officers that she went to the home after finding her father's vehicle keys and money at her house. The daughter, whose age was not released, discovered her father dead.
Johnson says Henderson police haven't responded to any domestic violence issues at the home in the past.
