COOLIDGE, Ariz. (AP) – Coolidge police are investigating what they say appears to be a murder-suicide that left three dead.
The Casa Grande Dispatch reports that 75-year-old Francisco Renteria Valenzuela and married couple 45-year-old Reyna Idalia Renteria and 57-year-old Everardo Verduzco, were found dead along Signal Peak Road on Wednesday. All suffered gunshot wounds and a handgun was found by Verduzco, who was married to Rayna Renteria.
Pinal County Supervisor Steve Miller discovered the bodies while driving.
Coolidge Police Sgt. Mark Tercero says interviews with family members of the deceased suggest there was a marital dispute that may have led to the deaths. A final determination of the cause of death will be made after investigators conduct ballistic tests.
