Update: Victims in Wauwatosa murder-suicide identified


WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- New details have been released in the murder-suicide that shocked a Wauwatosa neighborhood back in August. One of the men found dead in the home was a psychiatrist who lived there. The other was his lover.

Police say Henri Washington was found inside the home with a gunshot wound to the back of his head.

The man who lived there, Mark Batory, was shot in the mouth.

Police say Mark and his wife got divorced last year and on the day of the shootings, his 13-year-old son was outside the home.

The boy told officers that Henri came over and started arguing with Mark, even saying "Are we going to do this in front of your son?"

They went inside and Mark's son said he heard the two pops of gunshots.

Friends of Mark told police there had been violence in his relationship with Henri in the past.

Officers say just before he died, Henri left notes with messages to the effect of, 'I love you. Take care of my family. I'll see you on the other side.'

Mark's friends were adamant to officers that he didn't own a gun and never would.

Police believe Henri may have stolen the weapon used from an ex-boyfriend.
