TUPELO, Miss. —The Lee County coroner says a woman and her daughter found dead in Macedonia had been shot to death, while the woman’s boyfriend fatally shot himself.
Wiley Young, 55, his fiancee Danica McCord, 46, and her daughter Destiny McCord, 13, were all in church Sunday morning but that was the last time they were all seen outside their home in the Macedonia community.
The three were found dead in their Lee County Road 49 home around 8:30 Tuesday morning by Young’s son Jason, a Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks game warden.
Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson said friends and family tried to call the three Monday but had no luck.
Johnson said the bodies were found in the living room and kitchen area of the house with one fatal gunshot wound each.
One gun, a .45-caliber handgun, was found at the scene but Johnson said it was about equal distance from each body.
