2 dead in Plattsburgh murder-suicide

Posted: Updated:

Police say a Plattsburgh man killed his wife Monday morning, and later turned the gun on himself.

The body of the woman was found in a home on the former Plattsburgh airbase. The man's body was later found at the city waterfront.

Police say a newspaper carrier found a note on the door of the Maryland Road home reporting the murder-suicide. Officers found the body of 61-year-old Ann Cashman inside -- dead from a gunshot wound.  Another note directed police to the waterfront, where police found the body of 63-year-old Wayne Cashman a short distance from his truck. Police have not yet determined the motive for the shooting.
