Husband, wife found dead from gunshot wounds in Norfolk


NORFOLK , Va. (WAVY) — A woman and her husband were found dead from gunshot wounds inside a home in Norfolk last week, police say.

Norfolk police said officers were called to the 700 block of Yarmouth Street for a suspicious situation around 2:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 11. Once there, they found 71-year-old Katherine Beale dead from a gunshot wound.

Police said her husband, 71-year-old Gene Beale, was also found dead inside the home with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

“Walking down the street, I saw police in front of a house. There was probably three policemen in front of a house, standing guard.  It was very quiet, its a quiet street,” said a neighbor who asked to not be identified.  “That’s horrifying to know that anyone was killed, I mean, that’s terrible.”
