OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Authorities are investigating a potential murder/suicide in Oklahoma City.

Shortly after 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oklahoma City police were called to a home in the 5900 block of S.E. 87th St. to check the welfare of a couple.

Relatives told investigators that they were unable to reach the couple, even though it appeared that both of them were home.

When officers arrived at the home, they found 43-year-old Jlynn Releford and 41-year-old Michael Releford dead in an apparent murder/suicide.

Authorities believe Michael Releford shot and killed his wife before turning the gun on himself.

At this point, this is still an open investigation.
