A man and a woman were found dead in their home after the woman was absent from work for over a week.

Dawn Longo Rowe (49) and her husband, Lyttelton Wadell Rowe (56), were both found dead of a gunshot wound yesterday afternoon after police were sent to the 1000 block of Dairy Road in Parkton to check on the woman’s well-being. Co-workers became concerned when she hadn’t shown up for work and they were unable to contact her by phone.

Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit detectives are investigating this incident as a murder-suicide.
