The crime scene remains active, but is expected to be released to police tomorrow and will then be handed back to the family. 

11.45AM: POLICE have revealed the identity of the woman found dead in a Rockhampton home on Monday night.

Officers were called to the Frenchville house on Monday evening about 9.30pm after a Triple 0 call.

A firearm was the weapon used at the scene, according to police.

Police today confirmed the woman found dead at the scene was a 49-year-old Frenchville resident Julie Rush.

She was a mother of three sons.

However, The Morning Bulletin believes the man is Rockhampton anaesthetist Dr Andrew Carll.

The Frenchville Rd home was owned by Dr Carll, who worked for Mercy Health and Aged Care.

The Morning Bulletin understands staff have been advised of his death and offered counselling.

A long-time neighbour described the couple as 'excellent' and said their deaths were 'such a waste'.

"We have no idea who did this," they said.

Although police have not confirmed Dr Carll's identity, his distraught sister has expressed her grief on Facebook.  

She described him as a 'great kid' and said she is like a 'stunned mullet, as is the rest of the family'.

The bodies of the victims were taken to Brisbane yesterday and post mortems will be conducted this week.

Police also confirmed they were not looking for anyone else in relation to this investigation.
