Police identify two dead in CDA domestic violence incident

KOOTENAI COUNTY, Idaho --- Police identified the two dead in an apparent murder-suicide in Coeur d’Alene last week.

Katlyn A. Dettwiler, 25, and Peter J. Dettwiler, 28 were found dead inside the Falls Creek apartment complex on North Julia Street, according to the Coeur d’Alene Police Department.

Det. Jared Reneau said the two had not been seen for about a week, and police were called Thursday night for reports of a bad odor coming from the apartment.

In a release on Monday, Reneau said the incident between the two appears to be the result of domestic violence. He said they were still working to determine what exactly happened.

Police said they met with the manager of the apartment complex and allowed officers to enter the apartment for a welfare check. Inside the apartment, the officers found two people dead. 

The police said any time they find two bodies together like this it is immediately suspicious and investigations start at once. Investigators said they are questioning neighbors to find out anything.
