AIKEN COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Aiken investigators say the bodies of two people found inside a residence were victims of a murder-suicide.

According to investigators, the bodies of 47-year-old Sheryl B. Stone and 66-year-old William Howard Boyd were found Thursday afternoon at a home on Jackson Street. 

Stone was found shot to death and may have been killed 7 to 10 days before Boyd apparently took his life through overdose, according to the coroner's office.

A note, apparently written by Boyd, was discovered at the scene. In the note, investigators said, Boyd admitted to killing Stone.

The investigation into this case continues.
