The adult children of a Palm Harbor couple made a gruesome discovery inside their parents' home Tuesday morning. The children found Donalyn Clark Walsh and Stephen Douglas Walsh, both age 53, dead inside the home, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
The children told investigators they forced their way into the home at 1909 Forest View Drive because they had not heard from their parents since Sunday, April 22.
Investigators say Stephen Walsh shot Donalyn Walsh, then turned the 40 caliber semi-automatic gun on himself. Detectives say that on April 22nd, deputies responded to a call at the home to find the couple had been arguing. While deputies were on scene, Donalyn Walsh left the residence. Detectives say she returned home later that evening. The murder-suicide occurred the evening of April 22, according to investigators.
