GROVETOWN, GA (WFXG) - The Columbia County coroner has identified the man found dead in a suspected murder-suicide incident in Grovetown on Tuesday. Christopher Daniel Buehler was a Missouri native. The 26 year old was active duty with the U.S. Army and was stationed at Fort Gordon. According to the coroner, Buehler's cause of death is a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Grovetown Public Safety says Buehler and his wife were seeking marital counseling through the U.S. Army. Investigators believe he shot his wife -- a member of the Air Force -- before turning the gun on himself. She is still recovering at the hospital.
