(KMOV) -- A local couple was found dead after an apparent murder-suicide at a motel in South County.

St. Louis County police officers were called to the Motel 6 at 6500 Lindbergh around 12 p.m. on Monday after two people were found dead in one of the rooms.  

An employee of the motel looked into the room right after checkout time and saw what appeared to be two dead bodies and blood. 

Officers forced their way into the room and found the bodies of Ronald K. McRoy, 47, and Melissa A. McRoy, 30, of St. Louis.  It appears that both had been shot in the room. 

Motel records show the couple had been staying at the Motel 6 for days and did not register a vehicle with the front desk.  It is believed that they were dropped off and were schedule to leave Monday. 

A motive for this incident has not been determined and investigators are working to determine which person was the shooter in this case.
