Jenkins, Letcher County , Kentucky
An eastern Kentucky coroner said a man fatally shot three people whom he suspected of theft and then turned the gun on himself.
Authorities found the four bodies early Friday morning in two different homes about a mile apart in the tiny community of Jenkins on the Kentucky-Virginia border.
Letcher County Coroner Marty Baker said Timothy Shelby, 58, used a Glock pistol. Killed were Jennifer Walters, 35, Joshua Wyatt, 25, and Amy Ratliff, 31.
Baker said Shelby suspected the trio of stealing from him. Shelby and Walters lived together in a home on Oak Street, where Walters' body was found. Wyatt and Ratliff's bodies were found in a home on Ginseng Drive.
Police were called after two juveniles found a body about 2 a.m. Friday.
