Tulsa Police are on the scene of a murder-suicide Tuesday morning.

Homicide detectives arrived at East 101st St. and Yale just after 10 a.m. and said 89-year-old Nancy Ellis and 88-year-old Robert Ellis were found dead at the home. 

Detectives say this case appears to be a murder-suicide.

"It's tough on any scene when you find anything kind of similar to this. It's always a tough sad deal for sure. You've just got to figure out what happened and why it happened," said TPD Officer Danny Bean.

They say the couple had health issues so they are contacting care providers to get more information about them. Detectives are talking to neighbors and people who know the couple to figure out what happened and why. 

This is a developing story...
