    Authorities are investigating the deaths of a man and a woman found Friday outside a Massachusetts home as an apparent murder-suicide.

    The community of Ashby is in shock after police found the two deceased people after 1:30 p.m. on the front lawn of a house on Watatic Mountain Road.

    Neighbor Wayne Stacy says he knew the couple for years.

    "We used to go up there for parties," he said. "I can't say nothing bad about them. And I wouldn't if I could."
