The couple was found in their General Hardee Way home around 3 p.m. Friday afternoon after Beaufort County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call for a health and welfare check. Robert Jacobson, a one-time president of the Hemlock Society of South Carolina and a supporter of the "death with dignity" movement, was dead at the scene. A revolver was found near his body. Roslyn Jacobson remains in Savannah's Memorial University Medical Center in serious condition.
