Two deputies were sent to the address in the White Mountain Lake area, arriving about 10 minutes later and knocked on the door. Getting no answer the deputies checked the door and finding it unlocked entered to see if there was a problem or if someone needed help. After entering the residence Weems said the deputies found the bodies of 53-year-old David Deay and his wife, 58-year-old Judy on the floor. Weems said the two deputies made a search to see if there were any other victims or anyone still in the residence and secured the scene. Taking into consideration the position of the weapon used plus the presence of a note, Weems said that led investigators in the direction of murder/suicide as a likely scenario.
