2 dead in Southwest Miami-Dade murder-suicide

Two people are dead after an apparent murder-suicide outside a Southwest Miami-Dade County home, authorities said.

Police were called just after 1 p.m. Monday to the house in the 19000 block of 244th Street after the bodies were found by the adult son of the couple on the back patio.

Sky 10 was overhead where the bodies could be seen with tarps near the pool.

The two people were separated and the estranged wife had visited the house to pick up documents, police said. 

As news began to spread, coworkers and others who knew the couple began to arrive at the scene, distraught and confused to hear that the couple they knew could be a part of what police called a murder-suicide.

One woman collapsed on the street.

"They are great people. We really like them. I know the husband fairly well," one neighbor said.

Miami-Dade police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting. A motive remains unknown.
