10/13/2014: A double homicide in Vernon County leaves a community in grieving.

Residents say the tragedy has taken a toll on the small town of El Dorado Springs, MO.

17-year-old Logan Ellison is charged with the murders of his grandparents, 76-year-old Herman Ellison and 77-year-old Rosie Ellison.

Both victims were found dead inside their home on Friday evening, with gunshot wounds.

El Dorado Springs residents say Herman Ellison owned a business in town for several years, making the family very well known and liked within the community.

Some residents say Logan posted about feeling depressed on his Facebook page just a few days before the murders.

Those who knew Herman and Rosie Ellison say they will be greatly missed.

"They were both very kind and giving and they were just very sweet," said Joy Dobbs, El Dorado Springs resident.  "Rosie has a sweet personality and he always had a smile, so just very good quality people."

"Our prayers go out to the family," said Trish Hall, El Dorado Springs resident. "It affects everybody, our kids who knew the suspect and everybody else, it's just really devastating for the community."

Residents say they believe the tight knit community of El Dorado Springs will come together to support the Ellison family during this time.
