OCEANSIDE (CNS) - Authorities released the names Tuesday of an Oceanside couple found shot to death at their home in an apparent case of murder-suicide.
Police believe Tyrone Knight, 53, gunned down his 46-year-old wife, Vanessa, in their North River Road residence before taking his own life with the same pistol, Lt. Leonard Mata said.
Officers checking on the couple at the request of a concerned neighbor forced entry to their home and discovered their bodies in separate bedrooms about 5 p.m. Monday, the lieutenant said. They also found a note, dated June 24, in which Tyrone Knight wrote that he had shot his spouse and intended to kill himself, according to police.
"The state of decomposition of the bodies was consistent with the date on the note," Mata said.
Police have released no suspected motive for the crime.
The couple lived alone, according to Mata.
