Wichita police are investigating the deaths of a couple found in their home on South Edwards.
Police think the 57-year-old man died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. But investigators are still trying to determine how the 36-year-old woman died, said Lt. Ken Landwehr, head of the homicide unit.
Police found the couple's bodies in their home in the 700 block of South Edwards shortly after 6 p.m. Friday.
The discovery came after someone called 911, asking for police to check on the welfare of a 57-year-old man, said police spokesman Gordon Bassham. Officers had to force their way into the house.

"Preliminary evidence indicated the woman's death was suspicious," Bassham said in an e-mail. Police are waiting on a forensic examination to determine how she died, he said.
Police will provide more information about the deaths during the regular briefing for reporters Monday morning, he said.
