The Koulas were found shot dead in their LaCrosse, Wis., home by their son, Eric, who went to the house after they failed to answer his calls. Police said it looked like an assassination. The investigation led in several directions, including a tip from a neighbor - a banker - who said he had gotten death threats. A Google Map search for his address actually led to the Koulas' home.
