Euless nurse's death ruled a homicide

EULESS -- A 31-year-old nurse found dead in her apartment Sunday died from a gunshot wound to the head, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s Web site on Monday.

K’Lynn Low’s death was ruled a homicide, the Web site stated.

Her boyfriend, Jeffrey Meekins, 34, also was found dead in the apartment, but the medical examiner’s office had not made a ruling on his death as of Monday afternoon.

Investigators believe the case was a murder-suicide.

A small handgun was found in the apartment in the 1000 block of East Ash Lane, but there was no note found, said Euless police Lt. John Williams on Monday.

“Officers had never answered any calls to that location,” Williams said.

Williams said he did not know how long they had been living in the Euless apartment.

They were found on the living room floor of their apartment and were pronounced dead at 5:05 p.m. Sunday, according to the medical examiner’s Web site on Monday.

Low and Meekins were found by a neighbor’s child who had come over to the apartment to play with one of Low’s children, Williams said. Low had two children, but they were not away for the weekend, police said.

“The boy found them and contacted management, who called us,” Williams said.

Police canvassed the neighborhood, but they didn’t find anyone who heard anything coming from the apartment.
