TAMARAC (CBSMiami) – A suicide at a South Florida gun range led to the discovery of a second dead body in a Tamarac home as BSO investigators discovered it wasn’t just a suicide but a murder-suicide.
According to BSO investigators, a 52-year-old man walked into the Arizona Shooting Range, located at 4317 North State Road 7 around 10:40 a.m. where he rented a gun and shot himself in the head. No one else was hurt.
He was taken to Broward General Medical Center where he died.
When investigators went to his home to notify his 45-year-old wife, they found her body inside the house. Investigators have not said how she was killed or how long ago the murder took place.
Neighbors said they rarely saw the husband and wife.
The husband used to walk his golden retriever around the neighborhood and they never saw police called to the home before.
Many of them are stunned this happened in their neighborhood.
“This is very sad, very sad, especially when it happens so close to home, it’s surreal, it’s a shame,” said neighbor Jolene Mason.
The couple had been married for 15 years.
Investigators said they have no motive for this and they don’t believe the couple had any children.
