Police said they are investigating after a husband and wife were found dead in a Leawood home.

Officers were called to a home on 104th Street, just east of High Drive about 1:40 p.m. because a young woman said her parents weren't answering when she knocked at their door.

Officers entered the home where they found a man and woman, both 40 to 50 years of age, dead inside. Police said the two people are husband and wife and the coroner has ruled the deaths  a result of a murder-suicide caused by gunshot wounds.

"There was no forced entry, the deceased were in the same room together, it didn't appear that there was any type of intruder," Capt. Kevin Cauley with the Leawood Police Department said.

The people have been identified as Elisabeth Juergens, 48, and Jurgen "Eric" Juergens, 55.
