PHOENIXVILLE >> Po­lice have be­gun an in­ves­ti­ga­tion af­ter a man and woman were found dead in­side their Phoenixville home.

Po­lice said in a re­lease Dec. 19 that of­fi­cers were called to a home on the 1000 block of Bal­ley Drive at 6:29 p.m. on Sun­day, Dec. 16, for a re­port of two peo­ple found un­con­scious.

When po­lice ar­rived, they found a man and woman de­ceased in­side the home. Both in­di­vid­u­als each had a sin­gle gun­shot wound and had died of their in­juries, po­lice said.

The man was iden­ti­fied as 40-year-old War­nell Heck and the woman was iden­ti­fied by po­lice as 45-year-old Heather Wood­ward, au­thor­i­ties said.

Po­lice said fol­low­ing a pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion, it is be­lieved that the in­ci­dent was a mur­der/ sui­cide that re­sulted from a do­mes­tic in­ci­dent.

There is no dan­ger to the com­mu­nity, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

De­tec­tives with the Phoenixville Po­lice Depart­ment are con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate the in­ci­dent along with the Chester County District At­tor­ney’s Of­fice and the Chester County Coro­ner’s Of­fice.
