Selena Fawn Mowen and Jerry W Mowen Obituary
Selena Fawn Mowen, 47, and Jerry W. Mowen, 53, were found dead inside their Franklin County home Sunday after police responded to a report of a domestic disturbance. The couple was found to have each suffered a single gunshot wound. A Pennsylvania State Police Special Emergency Response Team (SERT) was called to the scene to investigate. However, authorities have not released information about the shooting.
According to state police, the incident was a domestic disturbance and was not deemed a danger to the public. They attempted to contact the two involved individuals but were unsuccessful. After several attempts, investigators were able to enter the house and find the two dead. In addition, the couple’s dog was also killed.
Mowen and Fawn were both born and raised in Hagerstown, Maryland. Mowen was a registered nurse. His wife, Selena, had worked as a nurse advocate for the Franklin County women’s shelter for six years. During their time together, she did not see any worrisome behavior between the two. She had no idea her husband was depressed, but she says her family knew of it. Sharon Miller, who stayed with the couple for three months over the summer, said she did not notice any problems between the two. It was during her time with the couple that she helped heal Selena’s broken foot.
Police say they did not know the exact cause of death for the victims, but they believe it was a murder-suicide. Although the investigation is still ongoing, authorities have not released any additional details. The incident occurred in Greene Township, Franklin County, and was investigated by the State Police. There are no known suspects in the murder-suicide.
Authorities have been unable to locate any other individuals in the home. Investigators are now searching for the person who killed both Selena and Jerry. This is an isolated incident, and it is unclear if there will be any charges pending against the individual.
Selena and Jerry were married for nine years and resided in Chambersburg. Their marriage ended in a murder-suicide on November 28. The couple had no known history of domestic violence. Both are buried at the Franklin County Cemetery in Chambersburg. They are survived by their children, Jason, Zachary, and Kaylie.
