Monroe County Police Investigating Murder Suicide

Last updated on Monday, July 22, 2013

(BLOOMINGTON) - Police are investigating the deaths of a man and woman in Monroe County this morning in an apparent murder-suicide at the home the two shared.

Monroe County Coroner Nicole Meyer confirmed that 48-year-old Kelly Emerick and 42-year-old William "Randy" Roudebush were found dead at the scene of an early-morning shooting.

She said it appears Roudebush shot Emerick, and then himself, at their home on Reba Court just southwest of Bloomington.

Emerick was a paramedic supervisor at IU Health Bloomington Ambulance Service. Roudebush was a captain for the Perry-Clear Creek Fire Department and a firefighter for the Ellettsville Fire Department. He also worked at the hospital supervising paramedics.

Autopsies on the two are scheduled in Terre Haute, one today and one Tuesday, Meyer said. She had known both victims for nearly a decade.

According to Monroe County Sheriff's Department spokesman Mike Pershing, officers are conducting a death investigation, but no other information was available this morning.
