Sheriff’s deputies found the bodies of three people slain in an Iowa campground before later discovering their apparent killer, who died of a self-inflicted wound, officials said Friday.
Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and Iowa’s Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) “were notified of a triple homicide at the Maquoketa Caves State Park campground” at 6:23 a.m., according to a DCI statement.
“Officers later found that a camper was unaccounted for,” 23-year-old Anthony Orlando Sherwin, the state agency said.
“Sherwin appears to have suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and there is no danger to the public.”
