A mother-of-two has been shot dead in what police believe was a murder-suicide by her husband who then turned the gun on himself.
Mikki Starr, 27, was found dead at her home in Lima, Ohio, on Wednesday afternoon last week by police alongside the body of husband Zachary, 29.
Officers were called after family members noticed that Zachary had posted some 'alarming' messages on social media.
A preliminary investigation concluded that Zachary had killed Mikki before turning the weapon on himself.
Detective Sergeant Jason Garlock, who is leading the investigation, said: 'We had information from family members that there were some social media messages that gave us the indication that’s what we’re probably looking at right now.'
Mikki had graduated from Elida High School in 2012 and then from Rhodes State College in 2019.
She had owned the house on Ford Avenue since March 2017. The young mother had been an endoscopy technician at Mercy Health-St. Rita’s Medical Center since August 2019.
