SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Sioux Falls police say 32-year-old John Ernest Vigus fatally shot 20-year-old Kayla Marie Paetow then took his own life yesterday afternoon in their West 7th Street home.
Lieutenant Matt Burns says detectives have not determined a motive. He says there is witness who saw the couple in a minor argument earlier in the day. He also says it's possible police will never know what caused Vigus to pull the trigger.
Burns says Paetow’s brother was upstairs when he heard the shots and called police. Vigus’s six-year-old son was also upstairs.
Vigus and Paetow moved to Sioux Falls from Freeman a month ago.
