Homicide detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding an apparent murder-suicide discovered Sunday morning in Canyon Country.
Deputies were called to the 28000 block of Creston Court, in a neighborhood behind Canyon Country Park, after a relative of the female victim came home and found them dead. Deputies arriving at the scene searched the location and found the suspect had hanged himself in the back yard.
According to investigators, the couple, who were married, were going through a divorce and had prior verbal altercations.
The victim, a female Hispanic adult, was killed by blunt force to the head and upper torso. Her husband, a male Hispanic adult, died as a result of the hanging. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigation continues into the incident.
