What drama was tied inside this house? The bodies of a septuagenarian and her 80-year-old husband were discovered Thursday morning at their home in Capinghem (North). The husband would have killed his wife before committing suicide, according to the first elements of the investigation.

The 73-year-old woman was “ill”, according to the prosecution. “Initial findings point to gun deaths. The woman would have died first.
