Couple found dead
A man who reported the deaths of his parents is now a suspect in their killings, Metro Police said.
Joseph McManus, 43, told police he had found his parents dead about 9 p.m. Friday inside their home in the 4300 block of Cottontail Lane, near Pecos and Flamingo Roads.
When police arrived, the man in the home was pronounced dead from an apparent gunshot wound. The woman was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, where she later died.
At first, police believed the man had shot his wife and then turned the gun on himself, but as the investigation unfolded, police came to suspect McManus.
McManus was arrested and booked into Clark County Detention Center on two counts of murder with a deadly weapon.
The shooting remains under investigation. Anyone with information regarding the homicide may call Metro Police at 828-3521, or to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 385-5555 or at www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
