UPDATE: Salt Lake City police released the names of the men as Andre Pappas, 70, and Theodore Beehakis, 67.
Salt Lake City Medical Examiner’s Office has determined that a 70-year-old man killed his 67-year-old domestic partner and then himself on Friday, Jan. 4.
Salt Lake City Police Department officers and fire personnel responded to the house at 1011 S. 400 East on a welfare check just after 10 a.m. Friday after a hospice worker was unable to reach them by phone. They were last seen alive on Wednesday, Jan. 2.
Police say no note was left and that the department has never before been called to the home. They are not calling their deaths suspicious.
Neighbors said the couple has lived in the house for more than 20 years and that the men took care of each other.
The couple’s names have not been released as police seek to locate next-of-kin for both men.
