Two men shot 
to death in Hailey

Homicides investigated as 
double murder or murder-suicide

Express Staff Writer

Hailey police are investigating a double murder or murder-suicide in the deaths of two men that occurred early Wednesday morning in South Woodside.

Chief Brian McNary said a neighbor reported two shots fired at 2950 Woodside Blvd. about 12:30 a.m. Officers responding to the scene found a male body inside the house and one in the yard.

The body in the residence was identified as David Wells, owner of the house. Wells is believed to be 37, McNary said Wednesday morning.

The other body had been identified but the victimís relatives had not been notified, McNary said. He said they were hard to track down since the man was rather transient.

McNary said police had not yet determined what had occurred.

"Itís convoluted," he said.

Hailey police were aided by three Idaho State Police forensics specialists who entered the house Wednesday wearing protective gear.
