WILDWOOD, Mo. (AP) - St. Louis County police say a woman and her adult son whose bodies were found in a suburban St. Louis home appear to have died during a murder-suicide.

Investigators say the bodies of the 54-year-old Janet Scherrer and 23-year-old Eric Scherrer were found Friday in the ranch-style home they shared in Wildwood.

St. Louis police said in a statement Friday afternoon that the early investigation appears to show the shootings were a murder-suicide.

Autopsies planned for later in the day were to help identify who shot whom.
