Police: Murder-suicide suspected in 2 deaths

October 7, 2014

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Springfield police have released the names of the husband and wife who died in what appears to be a murder-suicide.

Police say officers went to their house for a well-being check at about 8:15 a.m. Monday after the couple’s daughter reported she had not heard from them all weekend.

Sgt. John Delaney said investigators found the bodies of Ramanita Colon and Cristobal Gonzalez in a bedroom of their Eddy Street home. They were both 58.

Police say it appears as if Gonzalez shot his wife then took his own life.

Autopsies are scheduled and the investigation remains open.
