2 found dead at home of former Minnesota Vikings minority owner
Orono Police said the bodies of a man and a woman were discovered at a home in Orono, Minnesota. Police said the two were found dead and that there was a handgun found on the bed.
Authorities have not disclosed their identities.
Property records show the mansion is owned by businessman Irwin Jacobs and his wife Alexandra, CNN affiliate WCCO reported.
The Hennepin County Dispatch center got the call to respond to the scene at 8:31 a.m. on Wednesday, and police said there is no risk to the public.
Jacobs, long a prominent businessman, joined the NFL's Minnesota Vikings Board of Directors in 1988, the team's website says. He sold his shares in the team to a different ownership group in 1991.
The Star Tribune reported that Irwin Jacobs made a fortune as a corporate raider who bought and then liquidated failing companies at a profit. Alexandra Jacobs was an artist, and the family was active in supporting the PACER Center, a non-profit that works with parents of those with disabilities.
The Special Olympics Minnesota said it was deeply saddened by the news and praised Irwin Jacobs for his role with the Special Olympics World Summer Games in Minnesota in 1991.
"Irwin Jacobs was a historic figure in the Special Olympics movement as he served as the chairman of the Special Olympics World Summer Games when it was hosted in Minnesota in 1991," the organization said.
"Jacobs rallied the support of business leaders in the Twin Cities to make this event a huge success and the largest sporting event in the world in 1991. This event turned the world spotlight onto the Special Olympics movement and created a new trajectory for the quality of our competitions."
