GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.  — Authorities have identified the man and woman found dead inside a Grand Rapids home in an apparent murder-suicide.

Grand Rapids police said Monday that a medical examiner’s report indicates Robert Alfaro, 60, shot Diana DeYoung, 65, before turning the gun on himself.

DeYoung and Alfaro were found dead Friday at a residence in the 100 block of Franklin Street SW.

Police were called to to the home for a welfare check.   DeYoung’s employer contacted police because she had not been at work since Wednesday.
