The Springfield News- Leader is reporting a double homicide of an elderly Springfield couple. The story says that a man called 911 and said that his wife had killed herself and that he would be dead before they arrived. According to the news-leader police entered the house two hours later. If this is correct, what on earth would have taken two hours? What are the procedures for a suicide call? It's pretty apparent that time would be precious. Even knowing that the person was armed and had threatened death and the area would need to be secured what kept police from entering the home for two hours?
Could someone please explain to me how this happened?
