By Aaryn Frazier, September 17, 2018

Lucas County deputies responded to a 911 call about a possible shooting that had occurred at 14654 467th Street in Lucas, Iowa on September 17.

When they arrived on the scene there was no answer from inside the home, and they waited for a tactical team to proceed. Upon entering the residence, law enforcement discovered the body of a deceased male and a deceased female who have been preliminarily identified as Craig Dawson, 66, and Julie Dawson, 64, who both resided at the residence.

The bodies were taken to the Office of the Iowa State Medical Examiner’s office in Ankeny, Iowa, where the autopsies will be conducted.

This is an ongoing investigation being worked jointly by the Lucas County Sheriff’s Office and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation. The public is not in any danger at this time.  The investigation has found that this is an isolated incident.
