Two Dead in Apparent Homicide

April 25, 2006 -- Posted at 4:43 p.m. CST

 

BUTLER COUNTY, MO -- Butler County authorities are investigating the deaths of two people found dead in their home.

 

Debrah Reynolds and Roger McCollum, both in their 50's, were found dead Monday morning by a relative who was worried.

 

“The female subject didn’t show up for work in a timely fashion, which was unusual for her.  The individual went to the residence fearing something was wrong, made forced entry, and found the bodies,” said Butler County Sheriff Mark Dobbs.

 

The two were last seen alive on Sunday morning.  They were discovered around 10 a.m. on Monday, putting the time of death within 24 hours of discovery.

 

“There was certain evidence inside the home that made it obvious it was a homicide,” said Dobbs.

 

Sheriff Dobbs said there was no sign of forced entry, other than that made when the bodies were discovered.  

 

“As it appears thus far, it looks like there was no third party involved.  It’s very possible that the one responsible for the homicides was someone within the home,” said Dobbs.

 

Autopsies on the bodies are being conducted on Tuesday.

 

“We hope to learn a lot more about the incident, what took place, just from the causes of death,” said Dobbs.

 

Autopsy results on Debrah Reynolds should be known soon.  Sheriff Dobbs said the results on Roger McCollum could take several days.
