Pitt County investigators say a young child walked inside his home to find both parents dead Monday.
Both were victims of gunshot wounds that authorities are investigating as a possible murder suicide.
It happened at 459 Winding Lane in the Simpson area of Pitt County. The sheriff's office says 29 year-old Tammy Hardee Duvall had one gunshot wound to the head, her husband, 33 year-old Marshall Duke Duvall, had been shot twice in the head.
The sheriff's office says their five or six-year old boy walked in and found them and then ran to a relatives house, who then called police.
