The sheriff’s office has released a report on what appears to be a murder-suicide about 6 p.m. Saturday at a home in rural Pulaski County at a Cabot mailing address.


The dead are Justin Moody, 39, and his wife, Candace, 38. Deputies were notified by two daughters that their father had just shot their mother and he threatened to shoot himself if they called police. The girls said they heard eight gunshots as they left the residence on East Roderweis Road. A SWAT team was called because Moody had a number of weapons inside. They found the dead couple inside. The children said their parents had been quarreling about money for months.
