NEWLYWEDS DEAD: Texas couple die after murder-suicide inside their home while two young children were at school

A newlywed couple is dead after a man fatally shot his wife in the head and then killed himself inside their Texas home while the woman’s two young children were at school.

Casey Ross, 43, made a desperate call to police from inside a closet in her San Antonio home after her new husband, David Ross, had shot her in the head and then killed himself.

Police found David dead in a hallway of their suburban home when they arrived on Friday morning and rushed Casey, an anesthesiologist and mother of two children from a previous relationship, to the hospital, where she later died.

“I was walking here only a week or so ago, and I saw a man playing basketball with a little girl, and I saw a woman in the garage taking groceries out of the back of the car,” neighbor Jack Verhagen told Fox San Antonio. “And a week later, I am standing in front of a murder scene. I can’t believe it.”

In addition to running her own medical clinic, Casey Ross was a contractor in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit and a part-time professor for the University of Texas Medical School.
