Two found shot dead in home identified

DAYTON — Homicide detectives have no suspect in the death of a woman and man found shot to death inside a northwest Dayton home Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Authorities did confirm they are investigating the deaths of Carin White and Dewayne Johnson at 4313 Genesee Ave. as a double homicide.

White’s boyfriend called 911 saying, “My girl’s been shot,” according to 911 audio released by police.

Police entered the home about 1 a.m. with guns drawn, though White and Johnson were already dead and they were able to locate the boyfriend.

White, 26, and Johnson, 35, were shot multiple times and a gun was found in a bedroom near their bodies, police said.

Neighbors said they heard nothing suspicious before police arrived. White’s family declined comment later in the afternoon.

White’s boyfriend was not considered a suspect in the homicides as of early this morning, police said. His identity has not been released by police.

“It’s a complicated case and we are still early in our investigation,” Lt. Patrick Welsh said. “That’s all I can say at this time.”

Welsh would not elaborate on White’s relationship to Johnson, if any.

There have been no police incident reports at that address in the last year, according to police records.

White and Johnson are the city’s first two homicide victims this year.
