Salt Lake City police have identified the two men who died in a murder-suicide last week.

Police believe Andre Pappas, 70, shot and killed his domestic partner, Theodore Beehakis, 67, before taking his own life in the living room of a home at 1011 S. 400 East.

Police aren't sure how long the pair had been dead before their bodies were discovered Jan. 4 during a welfare check after a hospice worker was unable to contact them that morning. The two men were last seen alive Jan. 2.

Police also aren't sure what prompted the murder-suicide. No note was left, and police had never responded to the home before. Both men suffered from significant health problems, said Sgt. Shawn Josephson.

Police have been unable to locate either man's next of kin and are asking anyone who knows their family members or is related to them to contact the police department at 801-799-3000, with the case number 2013-1659.
