Police ID victims in Cool Springs murder-suicide

Posted: Updated:

Franklin police have identified the victims in Tuesday's murder-suicide at an apartment in the Cool Springs area.

Officers were called to the Alara Cool Springs Apartments along Gillespie Drive for a welfare check at around 1 p.m. after a family member reported being unable to reach the relatives, police said.

When the officers forced entry into the apartment, they found Diana Nicholson, 67, and her husband Roger Nicholson, 60, dead from gunshot wounds.

Police say the evidence at the scene indicates Diana shot and killed Roger before killing herself. Officers say it is unknown what led up to the incident.
