Jennie and William McClusky, both 53, have been identified as the victims.

Grenada County Sheriff Alton Strider says their daughter called the sheriff's department because she hadn't heard from her parents.

When officers arrived at the home, they found the couple dead from single gunshot wounds in the bedroom.

Strider says it appears the husband shot and killed his wife before turning the gun on himself. He says officers recovered a revolver lying near the husband.

The bodies are being sent off for an autopsy.
