UPDATED: Simeri deaths ruled homicide-suicide



The autopsy results from a New Carlisle couple found dead at their home this weekend indicate a homicide-suicide.

That's the word from St. Joseph County coroner Charles Hurley.

Police found Lisa Simeri shot to death Saturday in the front yard of their house in the 55000 block of Nature View Drive. On Monday officials ruled her death a homicide.

Police found Lisa's husband Nick Simeri inside the home with a gunshot wound to the head.  Hurley told FOX 28 the evidence indicates the wound was self-inflicted.  Nick was the owner of Simeri's Old Town Tap, on South Bend's west side.  That bar is closed until further notice.

50-year-old Nicholas Simeri and 49-year-old Lisa Martin-Simeri were found dead at their New Carlisle home.

Police say they received a 911 call from a neighbor saying a female was lying in the front yard of a home on the 55,000 block of Nature View Drive.

When police arrived, they discovered Lisa had been shot to death. Her husband Nick was found dead inside the home.

Nick is the owner of Simeri's bar on South Bend's west side.

"We will get some info on them. If there was any problems between the two, if they had problems with individuals, what's going on in their lives, until we can talk to family and friends and we will continue to talk to neighbors," said Mike Grzegorek with St. Joseph County Metro Homicide.

Metro Homicide is investigating the case.
