MIAMI (CBSMiami) – An investigation is underway at a Redland home after two bodies were found in the backyard on Monday.
Chopper4 was over the scene in the 19700 block of SW 244th Street.
Yellow tarps covered the bodies, which were just feet from the pool.
Although the victims’ names have not officially been released, family and friends at the scene identified the couple as Greg and Cynthia DiBernardo, who were married for 28 years.
“They’re great people. I really like them. I spoke to the husband and know him fairly well,” one person said.
The husband was a contractor and wife was a realtor of 20 years. Police said the couple was estranged.
Their adult son, lived with the father at the house, left to the gym Monday morning.
The mother, her friends say, had been at work. She apparently had an offer on the house and passed by to pick up property.
Their son found them dead in the backyard from gunshot wounds.
Police said it appears to be a murder-suicide.
Neighbors said they saw no signs.
“He is a contractor, a builder. He is a great guy,” one neighbor said.
Another neighbor added, “This has never happened. I’ve never seen any problems or any fights.”
CBS4’s Silva Harapetian was told the couple has a 35-year-old daughter in North Carolina and an 8-year-old granddaughter.
Just what exactly happened in those few hours that drove one of them to pull the trigger remains a mystery.
