A pool service employee reported an intense and unpleasant odor coming from a residence at 11328 Avenida Augusta in the Crescent Lake Club subdivision to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. Upon investigation, the in-charge deputies encountered three dead bodies.
According to the statements given by the deputies, the woman shot her husband and their special needs son before committing suicide herself.
Lieutenant John Herrell shared that this situation can be claimed as a double murder-suicide as per the observations. He further gave his condolences stating how unfortunate and heartbreaking such cases are, and wished that there would have been a different way the family would have dealt with their problems.
The investigation further disclosed that the couple in their 70s with their special needs son in his 50s was last seen by the close ones and neighbors approximately three weeks ago.
The case is still ongoing, and there are more details to be shared.
