DARDANELLE – Yell County authorities are investigating what they believe to be a murder-suicide at a Dardanelle home.

The Courier reported via social media that a gentleman stated he could not reach his son and after arriving at the residence, was not able to gain entrance through the front door, but was able to enter through the back door where he found his son and 10-year old grandson deceased.

Authorities said both victims were found with a single gunshot wound and the investigation is being considered a murder/suicide. The victims’ bodies will be sent to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory for further examination.
