BREAKING NEWS: Two shot dead in Mundoona farmhouse

5-4-08

A MAN and a woman have been found shot dead at a rural property in Victoria's Goulburn Valley. Emergency crews discovered the bodies in a farmhouse in Central Mundoona Road at Mundoona, near Numurkah, 210km north of Melbourne, about 3.45pm (AEDT) today. Police were called to the farm by Rural Ambulance Service paramedics. "We have two bodies up there. The deceased are a 36-year-old woman from the property and a male from Numurkah,'' Victoria Police spokesman Senior Constable Adam West said. "We believe both died of gunshot wounds. "We are leaning towards a murder-suicide but it's too early to say.'' Const West could not confirm the relationship between the deceased but said they were known to each other. Local police have established a crime scene at the farmhouse.
