Crawford County Sheriff Lewis Walker says Clinton Dickey and his estranged wife Shannon were found dead Monday of gunshot wounds at the husband's home in Musella.

Kristie Saffold and Kelsey Dickey are grieving for their brother Clinton. 

Kelsey says Crawford County investigators told him that "My brother killed his wife and killed himself."


The sheriff would not confirm that because he says the investigation is still going on.

But he did tell us investigators aren't looking for any other suspects. He confirmed that deputies recovered a small caliber handgun at the scene.

Walker says Clinton Dickey and Shannon Dickey got into a fight Tuesday afternoon, when she stopped by to pick up their son. Kelsey Dickey lived in the home too, but he says he wasn't there Tuesday when his brother died.


"He wasn't happy in his marriage. You know, wanting to be with somebody but that person don't want to be with you. Some people can take it, some people can't. This has been going on 4 or 5 years, and he just lost it," says Kelsey.

"He owned a gun. I kept it in my room," says Kelsey. "But I hadn't seen it in two or three months."
