Josephine County Sheriff's Office investigates multiple gunshot deaths

A husband and wife and a homeless man were found dead with single gunshot wounds to the head in Josephine County Monday, and sheriff's officials are still looking for leads and evidence related to their deaths.

Grants Pass residents Susan Jean Goins, 53, and Dennis Ray Goins, 63, were found dead at their 715 Mountain Greens Lane home at 12:11 p.m. by sheriff's deputies and an Oregon State Police SWAT team. Susan Goins' body was found in their driveway, and Dennis Goins' body was found inside the home. A sheriff's deputy had responded to the scene following calls from Susan's co-workers after she didn't show up for work.

The Josephine County Sheriff's Office later found 42-year-old Timothy Storie, described as a transient, in Merlin at 9:44 p.m., the Grants Pass Daily Courier reported. The newspaper reports emergency officials responded to 466 Galice Road after a gunshot was heard. Storie was found dead at the scene.

Anyone with information about the investigation should contact Detective Josh White of the Josephine County Sheriff's Office Major Crimes Unit at 541-474-5153.
