Sheriff’s Office investigating apparent murder-suicide in unincorporated Martinez

On Tuesday, December 3, 2019, at about 10:43 AM, Muir Station Deputy Sheriffs assisted Martinez Police Department regarding an investigation of a missing person.

The investigation led them to the 2400 block of Monterey Avenue in the Mt. View area of unincorporated Martinez. Deputy Sheriffs and Martinez Police Officers entered a residence and found a deceased female. While clearing the residence, the Deputies and Officers located a deceased man in a room.
