Couple found shot dead on country NSW road

A MAN and woman have been found shot dead on the side of a dirt road in the NSW Riverina this morning. 

It’s understood a passing motorist made the grisly discovery on Old Deniliquin Rd at Moama and alerted police around 9.30am.

The bodies were found next to an abandoned sedan on the side of the outback road, around 80 kilometres south of Deniliquin.


Police have told media there was nothing to suggest the deaths were the result of a murder-suicide. 

They’d reportedly been shot multiple times and left with horrific injuries.

It’s believed the couple lived in the local area but at 2pm, they had yet to be formally identified. 

The man who drove past and raised the alarm is being interviewed police.

The scene remains cordoned off and detectives have established Strike Force Kennedia to investigate the suspicious deaths.

There’s no further information available at this time.
