Man and Wife Found Dead at Home, Victims of Murder

SADIEVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The deaths of north-central Kentucky couple were determined to be the result of a double homicide, according to Scott County Coroner John Goble.

The bodies of James Gray, 63, and his wife Vivian, 55, were discovered Thursday morning by someone who went to check on them,
Goble said.

"It was called in as a murder-suicide, but that was not the case," Goble said Friday. "Autopsies and toxicologies will be done and I hope the result will be back within a week," he added.

The couple lived on Cincinnati Pike, which is also US 25, some 2½ miles south of the Grant-Scott County line, Goble said. The coroner would not comment on the type of weapon used to kill the couple, nor would he say how man time each was shot.

"They had been married 40 years," Goble said.

    i'm saddened by the death of james and vivian, they were almost my own family. my sister was married to their son and tragically died of pneumonia and not drugs at the age of 20. she left two young sons who were eventually adopted out because the natural father didn't want to be bothered with them. they are the ones hurt most in this tragedy, for only recently had they been able to have any type of relationship with their grandparents. first their mother and now this.

    I believe with what i have listened to and heard these were good people, and there son had drug problems,i think they should look into the son, as there are to much animosity towards him and his parents. I think that parents who want to get tough on their children and he is an adult whos wife i hear died from an overdose, and he wasn't allowed there, and said they had no other family members ,he sounds to guilty to me, i think the son should be looked at hard.

    Everyone needs to remember Jim and Vivian for the great people that they were. Someone has to have information regaring what caused this tragedy. Too many questions that havn't been answered for me. Rest in peace.

    I saw the news on this and was saddened even though i don't know any of these people but when the news showed the son, he didn't seem to be too torn up about both parents being dead. I'm sorry but if that had been my family murdered i would not have been able to stand out there at the scene and be that calm. I guess everyone reacts differently to any situation but i know i would not have been available for any news camera.

    I have been a friend of Vivian and James for years we all grew up together Vivian lived with us for a while when she was small.This couple has been taken from us and we will all miss them .I think someone close to them had too have done this to them.I would look close to home for the person who did this.

    Has a suspect been identified or caught? This is troubling indeed. I heard that the police are looking for a 26 year old man in connection with this. That this 26 yr old has been on the run from the law for approximatley 3 weeks now for another crime. My guess is that this suspect is a drug user and that these folks were home whe this person robbed them. I have been robbed three times in the last 3 years and law enforcement has not caught anyone so far. My condolences to the family and may law enforcement cactch up with this murderer sooner rather than later...

    And Scott Co. officials want to reduce first responder staff? It makes no sense.
