Lake Co. Retired Couple found murdered in Missouri

Posted: Updated:

A retired couple who spend their summers in Lake county, were found murdered in Missouri, Thursday night.

Two teenage boys are in custody in connection with the murders which took place in Stone County.

The victims are Paul and Margaret Brooks, who reportedly retired to the Baldwin area seven years ago.

They were staying with relatives in Missouri, but were alone when they were killed.

A neighbor told the local sheriff, he spotted the teens breaking into a house near where the Brooks were staying. He held them at gunpoint until deputies arrived.

The deputies then found the bodies of the Brooks, while checking the homes in the neighborhood.

The sheriff says autopsies are being performed on the bodies of the couple this weekend.

The two boys are not being identified because they're juveniles, but the sheriff says they are not from Missouri.
