LACEY -- The Thurston County coroner has identified the couple involved in an apparent homicide-suicide at a home in Lacey.
Coroner Gary Warnock said Thomas Niles, 83, died early Wednesday of a single gunshot wound to the back of the head as he slept. The coroner said Friday that Peggy Niles, 51, was found in the home and died a day later of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Authorities think the woman shot her husband in the bedroom of their home, then shot herself.
The couple lived at Washington Land Yacht Harbor, a gated community consisting of RVs and modular homes.
