Maryville Police are investigating a murder suicide that happened Monday evening.

According to Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp, Lori Laugherty's teenage son couldn't get in touch with her, so he texted a family friend who went by her home on North Everett High Road. The friend saw blood on the floor and a body and called police.

When officers arrived, they found Laugherty, 35, and her boyfriend, David Michael Kirk, 47, dead in the living room.

Investigators believe Kirk shot Laugherty, then himself.
