Midvale UT Couple Katherine Elizabeth Head & Robert Milton Head Found Dead in Apparent Murder-Suicide

Katherine Elizabeth Head and Robert Milton Head were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide in their Midvale, UT, apartment Friday night. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, a maintenance man at the Remington Apartments, 7400 S. State St., called 911 at 8:05 p.m. Friday after spotting the couple’s bodies through a window of their unit.

He reportedly had been asked by Katherine Head’s mother to check on their welfare; she was concerned about not having heard from the couple recently.

Arriving officers found a notice posted on the ground-level apartment’s door ordering the Heads to vacate the unit within three days. The apartment’s front door was locked and the officers forced entry.

This is another apparent murder-suicide that did not have to happen. There has been an uptick in the number of murder-suicides in the news. This is another domestic violence incident that could probably been avoided. Too many women are living in fear of losing their lives at the hands of their spouse or boyfriend. Love doesn’t hurt.

    This was not a case of domestic violence.  The two have been strugling with Kathy having  medical problems, and  financial problems as well. These two were in love and very devoted to each other and  would not have wanted to leave each other. They obviously couldn’t get the proper medical help  Kathy needed and Bob could not leave her alone to go out and get a job and leave her un attented any more.

      This woman’s husband isn’t God. He had no right to take her life, no matter what the problems they faced were. That’s selfish and taking the easy way out. If you truly love someone, you don’t shoot them to death.
