Local Mother Shot in Murder-Suicide
Police: Denis McGibney shot Casey Clark inside North Columbus Apartment
Police performing a wellness check at this upscale apartment complex used forced entry to gain access inside the residence of 27 year old Casey Clark.
It was then they discovered the young mother of two dead of a gunshot wound and the body of 57 year old Denis McGibney near by.
McGibney they say died of a self inflicted wound. Also inside was the couple’s 6 month old baby boy.
“Upon entering the apartment officers found a young child, I believe about a year old inside that apartment. The child was taken to the Medical Center.” Major JD Hawk
Exactly how long the baby was left unattended inside with the bodies of his parents has not yet been determined.
“We’re not positive. We’re trying to narrow that down. But it could have been at least a day.” Major JD Hawk
Meanwhile the victim’s grieving family members including her twin sister took to social media blasting the the man police say is responsible for her death saying Casey Clark’s life was taken by “a coward”.
Homicide Detectives are still investigating a possible motive for the shooting. The Investigation is ongoing.
A Go Fund Me page has been set up to assist the victim’s family with expenses.
