Police in Austin, Texas, are looking for a killer, or killers, after two University of Texas graduates were found shot dead yesterday in their West Campus apartment.
Stacy Barnett, 22, and John Goosey, 21, both from Houston, were shot between 9:00 a.m. and 5:15 p.m. yesterday, said Austin Police Sgt. Richard Stresing.
The deaths are being treated as a double murder.
Stressing said there were no signs of forced entry leading police to believe “they knew the person at the door.”
The bodies were discovered when Barnett failed to turn up at her parents’ home.
Her parents called friends, in Austin, who went to the apartment in West 21st Street and made the grim discovery.
Throughout the night, authorities interviewed about 10 friends of the couple who had first-hand knowledge of their friendships and dealings.
Friends had last spoken to Barnett yesterday morning.
She graduated this spring with a degree in interior design and was involved in several professional organizations. Most recently, she interned for a large architecture firm in Houston.
