Stacy Barnett, 22, and John Goosey, 21, were shot some time between 9 a.m.

and 5:15 p.m.

Tuesday, said Austin Police Sgt.

Richard Stresing.

He said the deaths are being investigated as a double murder.

There was no sign of forced entry into their home, he said."That leads us to believe someone opened the door willingly, which leads us to believe they probably knew the person at the door," Stresing said.Barnett's parents started calling her friends when she didn't show up at their Houston home, Stresing said.

He said her friends went to the apartment and found the couple had been killed.

Police understand both are UT graduates, he said.

The Goosey family today released a statement, offering their condolences to the Barnett family."Our son was a spontaneous, gregarious young man with a bright future and a smile for everyone that he met.

He and Stacy were very much in love, and it saddens us deeply to be planning funerals instead of a wedding," the statement read.

"We will miss his spirit dearly.''The Barnett family could not be reached for comment today.Police are urging anyone in Austin or Houston who may have talked to the couple recently or has any information to call the homicide unit at 512-477-3588.
