2 dead in ap­par­ent mur­der-sui­cide

The Citizens' Voice - - Local / Region / State -

Author­i­ties say the shoot­ing deaths of a 63-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl in­side a Penn­syl­va­nia home ap­pear to be a mur­der-sui­cide.

The bod­ies were found around 8:30 p.m. Fri­day when Po­cono Moun­tain Re­gional po­lice went to the home in Toby­hanna. Author­i­ties say Fred­die Sim­mons and the girl lived in the res­i­dence with oth­ers, but it wasn’t im­me­di­ately clear if the two were re­lated.

Po­lice found a note al­legedly writ­ten by Sim­mons, say­ing he was go­ing to kill him­self and take the girl with him. Their bod­ies were found in the same room.

The teen had been shot mul­ti­ple times while Sim­mons had a sin­gle gun­shot wound to the head. The girl’s name has not been re­leased.
