KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Police said they are investigating what appears to be a murder-suicide at a home in the 5400 block of Ridgeway Avenue.

Officers were called to the home at 12:30 p.m. Sunday to check on the people who live there. After going inside, police found a woman in her 70s and man in his 50s dead.
Investigators suspect the man killed his mother and then himself. Police identified the victims as Patricia A. Kuder, 73, and her son, Michael Roscher, 53.
A relative told police he had not talked to either one for almost two weeks.
Heather McCoy said she was acquainted with Kuder.
"She's always outside in the summer time, working in the yard. When it gets cooler, she stays inside. But she's always outside," McCoy said.
KMBC's Marcus Moore reported that investigators removed what appeared to be a number of guns or gun cases from the home.
