An autopsy of Mary Kent, a 73-year-old Glenwood Springs woman discovered in her home Oct. 18 with a gunshot wound, along with her deceased husband, determined the cause of her death to be a gunshot wound to the head.

Kent was flown to Denver Health Medical Center’s ICU, where she was undergoing treatment for 10 days before her family decided to remove life support.

Local investigators do not believe that Kent and her husband, 79-year-old Joseph Llewellyn, were the victims of a third party. Rather, police are investigating this as a possible homicide-suicide.

Llewellyn’s autopsy also determined that he died from a gunshot wound to the head.

The manner of death of both Llewellyn and Kent is under investigation.

“The manner of death will only be certified after a thorough investigation in cooperation with the Glenwood Springs Police Department,” Garfield County Coroner Robert Glassmire wrote in a press release.
