Vikings Part-Time Owner Irwin Jacobs And His Wife Alexandra Found Dead At Mansion; Murder-Suicide Suspected

Two people were found dead in the multi-million dollar home of renowned businessman and former part-owner of the Minnesota Vikings Irwin Jacobs this week, following a possible murder-suicide. His wife was found dead next to him.

The bodies were discovered in a bed next to a handgun by a routine visitor of the Minnesota residence on Wednesday morning, Orono Police Chief Correy Farniok confirmed in a press conference.

Some are speculating it could have been an argument turned bitter, as one spouse may have shot the other. One of them may have committed suicide after feeling guilty about shooting his or her spouse.

Johnson was known for being a great entrepreneur through the early 80s and the 90s. He made his name off of buying and selling companies, and was able to become wealthy in his business practices.

Johnson and his wife had been together for nearly 60 years, leaving many to question and wonder what were the motives.

The story surprised many, as people close to Johnson say he was upbeat over the past couple days.

Several people think this case is another act of domestic violence, while some claim it was a mercy killing. Reports came out that Johnson’s wife Alexandra Jacobs had been battling Dementia. Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women stated that this was not a mercy killing and that it wasn’t her decision to have her life end in that way.

The motives behind the case details have not been released yet. The police are treating this like a murder and suicide case, meaning they have reason to believe Johnson was the one who shot his wife.
