Authorities: Palm Harbor couple in murder-suicide had health problems

PALM HARBOR — A Palm Harbor man shot his wife, then turned the gun on himself, Pinellas County Sheriff's Office authorities said Wednesday in confirming a murder-suicide.

The elderly couple were found dead about 10 p.m. Monday by their adult son, who went to his parents' home at 2059 Sandpiper Drive to check on them.

John and Dorothy Aloizakis, both 86, were both "in declining health," said sheriff's spokeswoman Marianne Pasha.

Investigators did not find a suicide note, Pasha said.
