On Tuesday, January 14, 2014, at approximately 2:26 a.m., deputies from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, Phelan station, responded to a call regarding a female lying in the roadway. Upon arriving at the incident location, deputies located an unresponsive female lying near an unoccupied vehicle. It appeared as though the female was not breathing. Medical personnel responded to the location of occurrence and the female victim was pronounced deceased. The investigation led deputies to a nearby residence, where a deceased male was also located.
Detectives from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department Homicide Detail responded to assist with the investigation. Detectives learned the deaths were related to each other. It is believed the male subject caused the female subject's death, then committed suicide. A cause of death has not been determined for either of the subjects.
