Responding to a welfare check, police were called to 3600 Mount Abbey Ave. just before 8:30 p.m.

Police identified the man as John Marrs, the homeowner and father of the dead woman.

Police found Lisa Marrs inside the home, which smelled of natural gas, Brown said.

Because of the suspicious nature of Lisa Marrs’ death, homicide detectives were called to investigate and are collecting evidence and locating witnesses.

John Marrs, a patrol sergeant and two police officers were treated at a hospital for carbon monoxide exposure, Brown said.
