An elderly couple was found dead inside their home at 5177 Oak Grove Road on Thursday morning, May 16. After a family member discovered the bodies, he called the Macon County Sheriffs Office, who responded to the scene along with the Macon EMS and Red Boiling Springs Police Department.

“Upon entering the residence we found two people who were deceased,” said Sheriff Mark Gammons. “During the investigation we discovered that Mr. Kirby had taken the life of his wife, Edo, then took his own life as well.”

It appears the shootings took place very late at night or in the early morning hours.

According to a family member, Edo’s health was failing and Dennis had a bad heart.
