The woman has been reported by detectives to be an invalid. The home is equipped with a handicap ramp.

The names of the dead have not been released, but there are reports stating that one or both victims are related to an employee of Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice’s office. Nassau County District Attorney Rice was also at the scene.

A home health aide arrived at the house this morning, but could not enter. At that point the aide called the family who had someone come with a key. Upon opening the door, the bodies were discovered and a call was placed to police. The dead woman’s body was found in bed and her husband’s body was found nearby.

That's so sad that he'd shoot himself because his wife died.

I feel really bad for the family members who went in to open the door for the aide and then found them dead. That must have been terrible. Could you imagine?

I know it's awful. I couldn't imagine going to unlock the door of my parents or someone in my family's home and finding them both dead even if it was as they said. I don't know what I would do.
