A wealthy Minnesota business man, who was formerly a co-owner of the Minnesota Vikings, was found dead with his wife in a lakeside mansion on Wednesday, said a friend and the couple's children.
The two bodies discovered Wednesday in a bed of the Minnetonka Lake manor were identified as Irwin Jacobs and his wife, Alexandria Jacobs, told Mathematics Dennis Mathisen, a close friend of the businessman. Authorities responded to the residence after receiving a call, police said Orono.

The Jacobs had been married for nearly 60 years and Alexandria was "wheelchair bound for about a year and showed signs of dementia," Mathisen told the newspaper. Irwin had been "upset" by his state of health, said Mathisen, adding that he was suspected that Irwin had killed his wife, and then himself.
The couple's children also confirmed their deaths in a brief statement Thursday.
Irwin, 77, had a minority stake in the Vikings in the 1980s before selling his share. It was formerly known as "Irv the Liquidator" because of its practice of buying underperforming companies and selling them at a profit.
