The deaths of a husband and wife in Arcadia were being investigated Tuesday as a possible murder-suicide, authorities said.
Officers went to the 500 block of Los Altos Avenue, near Baldwin Avenue, at about 10:30 p.m. Monday, according to Deputy Trina Schrader of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which was assisting Arcadia police in the investigation.
“Officers responded to a possible suicide call,” Schrader said in a statement. “When they arrived, they found a male Asian adult deceased in the garage. When they entered the home, they found a female Asian adult deceased also. They were both pronounced dead at the scene.”
The names of the man, 75, and the woman, 68, were withheld, pending notification of their next of kin. The cause of death was not released. Both were discovered by a relative, Schrader said.
“Evidence at the scene has revealed this is a possible murder-suicide,” Schrader said. Other details were not released, and the investigation is ongoing.
