Self inficted gunshot death

Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call last night around midnight at 16590 Ja Ella Drive, Iowa.  The caller advised his wife had shot herself. When deputies arrived they discovered, a female down in the home.  

The victim, Gretchen Yvette Raimer, 39 was pronounced dead at the scene by Jeff Davis Coroner, Dr. Charles Deese.  It appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound at this time, according to investigators but they are still working the case and will have to wait for autopsy results.

The husband, Kenneth Steven Raimer, 52, of 16590 Ja Ella Drive, Iowa was in the residence when deputies arrived. An altercation occurred outside the residence involving Kenneth Raimer when he pushed one of the deputies and refused to comply. Raimer was intoxicated and had to be handcuffed to get control of him.  During the altercation one of the deputies uniforms were torn and his taser holster damaged. 

Raimer was booked into the parish jail on charges of  Simple criminal damage ot property, resisting an officer and battery on a police officer.
