Harrisburg couple dead in apparent murder-suicide

A couple was found dead in their Harrisburg home Wednesday afternoon in what appeared to be a murder-suicide, sparking an investigation by Cabarrus County authorities.

Investigators believe that Diane Pittman Price shot her husband before turning the gun on herself.  Both were 61 years old and discovered by police Wednesday afternoon, after people that knew them contacted the sheriff’s office when they had not heard from the couple in several days.

A Cabarrus Sheriff’s Office incident report lists Diane Price as a murder suspect, according to the Independent-Tribune of Concord.
