HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Authorities have identified a Henderson man who police say fatally shot hit wife and then killed himself in an apparent overdose.

Clark County coroner’s officials say 45-year-old Wade Elliott Adams was found dead in his home Saturday. Officers also found the body of the 39-year-old woman, whose name hasn’t yet been released.

Henderson police say a passer-by called 911 around 11 a.m. after spotting the man’s daughter crying outside.

The daughter told responding officers that she went to the home after finding her father’s vehicle keys and money at her house. The daughter, whose age was not released, discovered her father dead.

Johnson says Henderson police haven’t responded to any domestic violence issues at the home in the past.
