HARDY COUNTY, W.Va. (WHSV) - In Hardy County, investigators are looking into what they believe is a double-murder/suicide case.

On Friday night, deputies from Hardy County recieved a call that there had been several shootings at a home and responded to the scene.

According to a Hardy County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, the deputies along with the Moorefield Police Department, arrived to a home along Trough Road where they found the bodies of Quentin Strawderman and Ashley McDonald. McDonald, according to investigators, was identified as being pregnant at the time of her death hence why they are calling it a double murder.
