Vermont Police Say Bristol Couple Dead In Homicide-Suicide

Vermont State Police say a Bristol man shot and killed his wife and then turned the weapon on himself.
Police say the bodies of 70-year-old Candice Guilmette and 71-year-old Gary Guilmette were found in the couple’s home on Monday after relatives asked a neighbor to check on them.

Investigators say they believe Gary Guilmette shot his wife and then killed himself.

The motive remains under investigation. Investigators say that Gary Guilmette suffered a medical event in early 2019 that may have altered his mental status. Detectives are working to determine if that played a role.

The investigation is continuing and police are asking anyone who saw or spoke to the couple since Saturday night or may have information about what happened to contact the state police barracks in New Haven.
