FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the fatal shootings of two women.

Sheriff Pat Melton told news outlets that a relative of one woman found the victims’ bodies on Friday after going to a home just outside Frankfort to check on things after not being able to reach anyone.

Media report the sheriff’s office said on Monday that the women killed were 32-year-old Jennifer Lynn Downey and 89-year-old Carolyn Barker. Melton said Downey was a caretaker for Barker, who was bedridden.

Melton declined to say whether the shootings are linked to a man who died Friday from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound at a home in Frankfort, but he said investigators are talking with Frankfort police as part of the investigation.
