August 22, 2016

crime tapePolice officers found two homicide victims inside a Morro Bay home early Monday morning. Officials say the preliminary investigation indicates there are no outstanding homicide suspects, but it is unclear whether the deaths are being investigated as a murder-suicide.

At around 2:30 a.m., a Morro Bay police officer who was on patrol noticed an open door at a home in the 2400 block of Greenwood Avenue. Multiple officers attempted to contact the residence to determine if there were any problems, according to the Morro Bay Police Department.

The officers then found two dead bodies inside the home and closed off the street.

Police are allowing residents who live on the block to leave the area. No additional danger is posed to neighbors or the community, police say.

Investigators request that anyone with information about the deaths contact the police department at 805-772-6225.


sources at my work say it was a co-worker of mine that I knew(the male) and that the female victim may also have been a co-worker and that a gun was used. Am having a hard time wrapping my mind around this as the guy always seemed so upbeat. What a shame for their little girl.


Just Horrible! So how did the police know to go to the house?


the police spotted the front door standing wide open at 2:30 am


That’s a quick jump to assuming that it was a murder suicide. Hopefully a more thorough investigation happens. Was a gun used? You show a handgun in the photo but it’s not mentioned in the article if the persons appear to have died from gun shot wounds and there is no report of neighbors hearing gun shots.
