Woman kills 87-year-old man, self, near Newport

NEWPORT, Ore. (AP) — A woman is believed to have killed an 87-year-old man and then herself in a travel trailer at a camping resort on the Oregon coast.

The two were related but investigators wouldn’t immediately say how.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Carla Gustafson is thought to have shot Charles Young and herself inside the trailer, which was parked at Whalers Rest RV & Camping Resort, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded to the Newport-area resort March 28 to check on Young and 64-year-old Gustafson.

They found the woman and man, both Tillamook residents, inside a travel trailer. The sheriff’s office says it appears they had been dead for days.

The sheriff’s office says the motive for the shooting remained unclear Wednesday. The case remains under investigation.
