A Georgia man apparently shot and killed his wife inside their home — and called cops to confess before turning the gun on himself, according to reports.
Timothy Price, 41, a trucker, and wife Katherine, 36, a budget analyst for the Georgia Air National Guard, had three kids and were a “power couple,” neighbors said.
Police responding to Price’s phone call forced their way inside the Centerville, Ga., home when no one answered, finding the couple dead, according to Macon.com.
Neighbors — who watched as police threw tear gas into the home during the May 4 incident — were stunned, WXGA reported.
“We just have to keep praying for our community, because you never know what’s going on, sometimes even next door,” neighbor Millicent Wooden told the station.
The couple had been married for 11 years, family members told 13WMAZ.
“I’ll always remember him as like that father figure, like always looking out. Even though I wasn’t his child and he had his own family, he always looked out for me, and Kat, bringing me in like I was just one of their own. She just treated everybody like family. They were just always good to people,” nephew Caleb Miles said, according to 13WMAZ.
Katherine Price was a master sergeant in the Georgia Air National Guard’s 116th Air Control Wing, the station said.
“Master Sgt. Katherine Price was truly a valued member of our organization and respected by so many,” Col. Amy Holbeck, commander of the 116th Air Control Wing, said. “In the Georgia Guard, we are family and when we lose a member it is felt by everyone. We are working closely with Katherine’s family, friends and co-workers to provide much needed support during this time of loss and healing.”
