Deaths Ruled Homicide & Suicide

The causes of death of two Knox County men early Wednesday morning have officially been ruled a homicide and a suicide.

Autopsies were completed Thursday on the bodies of 33-year-old Paul Ryan Russell of Bruceville and 48-year-old Todd Godare of Bicknell.

Authorities say Russell died from a single gunshot wound to his chest while Godare died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head.

Police say Godare shot and killed Russell during an argument near Durbin and Cherry Streets in Bicknell around 2:00 AM Wednesday.

Godare committed suicide in his car after being pulled over by Vincennes Police on US 61 near Kimmel Road.

Detectives believe the .22 caliber revolver recovered from Godare’s vehicle was also used to kill Russell
