Hastings City Police are investigating the deaths of three familiy members whose bodies were discovered Sunday morning around 8:43am near the 1600 block of Lavender drive in Hastings.
According to Chief of Police Jeff Pratt, police believe that 77 year old Judith Wilson and her 79 year old husband Robert Wilson died due to gunshot wounds that they had received. The 3rd body of Richard Garrett Wilson, who is the son of Judith and Robert, was found deceased due to a self- inflicted gunshot wound. All three of the family members lived at the residence.
Police were originally notified when a family friend went to the residence to check on the Wilson’s when they did not arrive at Church.
