TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A male and female in their mid-30s were found dead in a southside home early Saturday morning and officers are investigating the incident as a murder-suicide.

Just before 1 a.m. Tucson Police Department officers responded to a check welfare report in the 5900 block of South Randall Boulevard, according to a Sgt. Chris Widmer.

The caller told 911 that a male and female were inside the residence near Drexel Road and Park Avenue and appeared to be dead.

Upon arrival, officers located a 35-year-old female and a 34-year-old male with signs of trauma. Both were pronounced deceased at the scene.

Homicide detectives responded to continue the investigation. They spoke to family members and examined physical evidence at the scene. They discovered that the male and female had a domestic relationship. The male lived at the home and the female was there visiting. Family members of both the male and the female became concerned after they were unable to contact either of them throughout the evening. Members of both families went to the home to check their welfare and discovered their bodies inside the residence.

Detectives discovered gunshot trauma to the male and a handgun near his body. They were unable to definitively determine the cause of death to the female, but are looking into the possibility that she was strangled. The preliminary findings indicate that the male murdered the
female then shot and killed himself. Detectives are investigating the incident as a murder-suicide.
