ST. JAMES - Police say a young mother was found murdered this morning in her St. James home, and the suspect, who is the father of her child, was also found dead in an apparent suicide. Police say the parents of 31-year-old James Schultz, of East Northport, called police after they found him dead of a bullet wound this morning. They told investigators that he had fathered a child with a young woman from St. James.

Authorities say they went to check on the mother, 23-year-old Katherine Farrell, after she did not report to work this morning. She was found stabbed to death inside her family's Hill Road home, police say.

The couple's 13-month-old son was unharmed.

Officials say the investigation is continuing.
