The Orange County Sheriff’s Department is investigating after two bodies were found in a residence in unincorporated Santa Ana on Monday afternoon, at about 3 p.m., according to the O.C. Register.
The bodies, of a man and a woman, were found by responding O.C. Sheriff’s Deputies at a home at 13452 Winthrope.
Orange County Sheriff’s Department investigators at this time believe Maurice killed his wife and then he committed suicide.
The Deputies went to the home at the request of a family member of one of the deceased, according to the O.C. Sheriff.
While the O.C. Sheriff’s Department is investigating the deaths their investigators do not believe that there are any suspects at large.
The identities of the deceased pair were not going to be released until their next of kin could be notified.
At this time the Sheriff is not sure if the deaths were a suicide or double suicide.
