Meridian P.D. say they are investigating a suspected murder-suicide at a home on the 2200 block of Horse Creek Ct.

Police say they were alerted to the incident by a witness who went to check on a friend who did not show up to work.

The call came in around 1:00 p.m. on Thursday.

Police say they discovered the bodies of a 46-year-old man and a 36-year-old woman in the master bedroom of the home.
