Man Kills Bedridden Wife, Self

September 29, 1987|From the Associated Press

An ailing 88-year-old man wrote a note, called apartment security officers to describe what he was about to do, then fatally shot his bedridden 90-year-old wife and himself in the couple's Park LaBrea apartment today, Los Angeles police said.

It was believed the woman was suffering from Alzheimer's disease, but police were unable to immediately confirm that. "The note he left said she was no longer able to care for herself, though," a police spokesman said. He said the names of the couple, who had been married for 57 years, would not be released until any next of kin could be notified.
