Authorities officially identified the two women found dead in a Crystal home late last week.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner said Sharon L. Krause, 62, and Dianne M. Larson, 73, both died of a gunshot wound to the head.
Both women were discovered at the home on the 5100 block of 49th Avenue North around 11:55 p.m. on Jan. 27, after a 911 caller reported bodies inside the property.
Crystal police had said it was being investigated as a murder-suicide, which the medical examiner confirmed, ruling Krause's death a homicide and determining Larson took her own life.
Property records list Larson as the homeowner.
