Police Investigate Double-Murder In Andover Home

This article is more than 7 years old.

Police say an Andover husband and wife found shot to death inside their home in an affluent neighborhood were victims of a double homicide.

Police Chief Brian Patullo said the bodies of 69-year-old John Magee and 67-year-old Geraldine Magee were discovered after a relative called police at about 9:18 a.m. Wednesday to report a shooting at the house on Orchard Lane.

Patullo said a Lexus SUV taken from the house was located in Boston. It had been found burning Tuesday night in the city's North End.

Patullo said there are no suspects or persons of interest in the killings, which he called an isolated act that isn't believed to be a threat to the community.

The Eagle-Tribune reports the Magees were developers who built large homes, including the subdivision where their 6,000-square-foot home is located.
