INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.—The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating a murder attempted suicide on Indianapolis’ south side Tuesday afternoon.

IMPD officers were dispatched to the 5800 block of South Madison Avenue on the report of a person shot just after 3 p.m. When officers arrived they found a 89-year-old man with suspected gunshot wound to the head. EMS personnel were notified and pronounced the subject deceased. In close proximity a second victim, 71, was located also suffering from what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the face.

It appeared the two men may have orchestrated the crime together. A suicide note was found at the scene.

“We don’t know who wrote the note but it does appear both of the individuals were corroborating with each other and planned the whole thing,” said Officer Christoper Wilburn of IMPD. “The individual left behind notes in the effect of the pain and suffering they wanted to end. They wanted to do it in a very public place.”

Double Murder/Suicide – Dead – Ricky Junior Toney (Louisburg, NC)

Ricky Junior Toney3

A preliminary autopsy report suggests that Ricky Junior Toney, one of the suspects in a Dec. 31 double homicide in Franklin County, died of a self-inflicted wound, according to Warren County Sheriff Johnny Williams.

Toney, 34, and his brother, Joey Lamont Kearney, 16, both of Franklin County, led law enforcement officers on a manhunt that covered areas of Franklin and Vance counties before ending in southwestern Warren County.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office was called to a residence on West River Road in Franklinton at 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 31 to the scene of what was believed to be a domestic dispute. According to the sheriff office’s report, there was no answer at the door when deputies arrived. Deputies were able to enter the residence through an unsecured door and found broken glass on the bedroom floor, blood pooling at the base of the bathroom door, and a mirror in the bathroom that appeared to have been shattered by a gunshot.

According to the report, the bodies of a woman and her teenage daughter were found in the bathroom. They later were identified as Akesia Michelle Toney, 37, Ricky Junior Toney’s estranged wife, and Brianna Nicole Jones, 16.

Deputies say the teen helped Toney killed his 37-year-old estranged wife and her 16-year-old daughter at their home in Louisburg early Tuesday morning. The chase started several hours later when Vance County deputies say they spotted Toney in his dead wife’s car.

Murder/Suicide – Dead – Michael Penrose (Parke County, IL)

male

DANVILLE — Investigations into the death of an area woman continue after her body was found in her home late Sunday evening.

The Vermilion County Sheriff’s Department was called just before 9 p.m. Sunday to the home of Jamie L. Sternberger, 40, along Greenwood Cemetery Road.

Capt. Rod Kaag, chief investigator for the sheriff’s department, said Sternberger was found dead inside the residence with initial indications of gunshot wounds.

ANVILLE, Ill. (AP) – Authorities in east central Illinois say a man found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Parke County, Indiana, was a suspect in the murder of a 40-year-old Illinois woman.

The woman, Jamie L. Sternberger, was found fatally shot Sunday in her mobile home near Danville. Her vehicle was found Sunday in Indiana at an undisclosed spot where 43-year-old Michael Penrose is believed to have committed suicide.

Chief Deputy Bill Todd of the Parke County, Indiana, sheriff’s office says Penrose may have been living with Sternberger for about six months at her home outside of Danville where her body was found.

Capt. Rod Kaag of the Vermilion County sheriff’s department tells The (Champaign) News-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1cla9tu ) investigators consider Penrose the only suspect in the murder.

However, Chief Deputy Bill Todd with the Parke County, Ind., Sheriff’s Office said his department is working through its official identification confirmation process, but they believe that it was the body of Michael Penrose, 43, that was found at 5:38 p.m. Sunday at an undisclosed location in Parke County, Ind.

Todd said they believe Mr. Penrose was the victim of a single self-inflicted gunshot wound. He said they have linked Mr. Penrose to a rural address near Rockville, Ind., but believe he had been living temporarily with Ms. Sternberger for the last six months at her mobile home.

DANVILLE — Investigations into the death of an area woman continue after her body was found in her home late Sunday evening.

The Vermilion County Sheriff’s Department was called just before 9 p.m. Sunday to the home of Jamie L. Sternberger, 40, along Greenwood Cemetery Road.

Chief Deputy Bill Todd of the Parke County, Indiana, sheriff’s office says Penrose may have been living with Sternberger for about six months at her home outside of Danville where her body was found.

Capt. Rod Kaag of the Vermilion County sheriff’s department tells The (Champaign) News-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1cla9tu ) investigators consider Penrose the only suspect in the murder.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Latalia Robinson (Marion, FL)

Latalia Robinson

Marion County Sheriff’s Office detectives confirmed Tuesday that the couple found dead inside a Dunnellon-area home on Sunday were the victims of a murder/suicide and that the woman had been shot multiple times.

Latalia Robinson, 32, was shot with a Taurus .40-caliber handgun that belonged to her husband, Dean Hamilton, according to the man’s friend.

The friend also told detectives Mark Peavy and Felix Rodriguez that the 33-year-old Hamilton, the woman’s estranged husband, usually kept the firearm in his vehicle. He later turned the gun on himself, officials said.

The woman was discovered in the bed, while her husband was found close by.

Three children — a boy and two girls, ages 11, 8 and 7 — discovered the bodies inside the bedroom. The kids have been referred to counseling, authorities said.

Officials said the boy was from a previous relationship and was Robinson’s son. Her two daughters were with Hamilton, officials said. Robinson was a biology teacher at West Port High School.

“This is a clear-cut case of domestic violence that ended tragically, and now three children are without their mother and father,” said Maj. Tommy Bibb, head of the Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit.

Court records show one of them filed fordivorce on November 26, 2013. Robinson was a biology teacher at West Port High School in Ocala. According to her Facebook page she started working here this year.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – April Everts-Hampton (Simi Valley, CA)

April Everts-Hampton1

A 42-year-old Simi Valley man shot and killed his wife before turning the gun on himself this weekend, police said Tuesday.

The couple’s four children were home at the time of the shooting, but were unharmed, police said.

Investigators said Jason Hampton killed his wife, 30-year-old April Evert-Hampton, in their home at 2440 E. Woodrow Ave. Saturday afternoon before shooting himself with a handgun.

Evert-Hampton was declared dead at the scene shortly after police arrived at just before 2 p.m. Jason Hampton was transported to a local hospital in critical condition, and later died from his injuries.

April Everts-Hampton, 30, and Jason Hampton, 42, were found in a home in a cul-de-sac in the 2400 block of Woodrow Avenue at about 1:40 p.m. Saturday.

During the investigation, it was determined that four children were living at the residence. Livingstone said detectives at the scene believe the children were not in the home when the shootings occurred.

On December 28 at 1:38 PM, Simi Valley Police Department Officers responded to an “unknown trouble” call at 2440 E. Woodrow Ave. Upon arriving, officers discovered a male and female adult inside the residence with gunshot wounds. The female was deceased and the male was gravely wounded with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The male was transported to an area hospital where he subsequently died as a result of his wounds. A handgun was recovered at the scene. There were four children residing at the location that were unharmed and are presently under the supervision of a case worker from Ventura County Child Protective Services pending the identification and notification of family members. The Police Department would like to commend and thank those area residents who willingly provided shelter and assistance to the four children while waiting for the arrival of Child Protective Services.

Update 12/31/13, 1445: The two decedents, Jason Hampton, 42 years and April Everts-Hampton, 30 years were married. During the subsequent investigation, a determination was made that Jason was responsible for April’s death and then killed himself. Detectives have still not established a motive for this tragic crime.

Mass Murder/Suicide – Dead – Ben Freeman (Houma, LA)

Ben Freeman

A Houma man killed four, including himself, and injured three others in a shooting rampage across Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes Thursday, according to police.

The dead are Milton Bourgeois, longtime CEO at Ochsner St. Anne General Hospital in Raceland; Susan “Pixie” Gouaux, wife of Lafourche Parish Councilman Phillip Gouaux; the suspected shooter, 38-year-old Ben Edward Freeman; and his wife Denise Taylor Freeman.

Councilman Gouaux, his daughter Andrea and Bourgeois’ wife Ann were also shot, but had survived as Friday morning.

Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s deputies found Ben Freeman dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside his SUV on U.S. 90 near Bayou Blue hours after the shooting.

According to Sheriff Craig Webre, sometime before 6:40 p.m. Thursday, Freeman entered Councilman Gouaux’s residence on Hyland Drive in Lockport. Freeman was divorced from Gouaux’s daughter Jeanne, who was not at the home.

Once inside, police believe the shotgun-wielding gunman shot Phillip Gouaux in the throat, killed Gouaux’s wife and shot his other daughter Andrea.

The councilman was able to make the initial 911 call before he was rushed with Andrea to University Hospital in New Orleans. They are listed in critical, but stable condition.

Immediately after, Freeman drove some 15 miles north to Raceland and the home of Bourgeois on the 2900 block of La. 308. Bourgeois was the CEO of St. Anne General Hospital since 1988 where Freeman worked as a registered nurse before being terminated in 2011, according to Webre.

Inside the Bourgeois residence, police said Freeman killed Bourgeois with a close range shotgun blast. Bourgeois’s wife Ann was also shot in the leg and is listed in stable condition.

Three hospitals where Freeman worked in years past, Terrebonne General Medical Center, Thibodaux Regional Medical Center and Ochsner St. Anne General Hospital, were on lockdown while officers searched for Freeman.

Parked along U.S. 90 sometime before 10:20 p.m., Freeman shot himself in the head with the same shotgun used in the slayings, police said.

The search for Freeman led authorities to his Houma home, where they found his wife, Denise Taylor Freeman, dead in the bathtub, Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Jerry Larpenter said. Her cause of death hasn’t been determined, but Freeman is suspected of killing her as well.

Webre described a “difficult” custody conflict between Ben Freeman and Phillip Gouaux’s daughter. He noted Freeman was mandated by a court to have supervised visits with the four children he fathered with the daughter.

Freeman has also plead guilty to harassment charges and had multiple protective orders filed by his ex-wife, according to Webre. The last of those orders expired less than a month ago.

“Clearly, there has been a very difficult and complicated divorce/custody issue going on,” Webre said in a late-night news conference Thursday.

The Jefferson Parish Coroner ruled the cause of death was asphyxia (strangulation) due to suffocation and drowning for Denise Freeman. Authorities believe she was the first victim killed.

Mass Shooting – Wounded – Woman (Houma, LA)

female

A Houma man killed four, including himself, and injured three others in a shooting rampage across Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes Thursday, according to police.

The dead are Milton Bourgeois, longtime CEO at Ochsner St. Anne General Hospital in Raceland; Susan “Pixie” Gouaux, wife of Lafourche Parish Councilman Phillip Gouaux; the suspected shooter, 38-year-old Ben Edward Freeman; and his wife Denise Taylor Freeman.

Councilman Gouaux, his daughter Andrea and Bourgeois’ wife Ann were also shot, but had survived as Friday morning.

Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s deputies found Ben Freeman dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside his SUV on U.S. 90 near Bayou Blue hours after the shooting.

According to Sheriff Craig Webre, sometime before 6:40 p.m. Thursday, Freeman entered Councilman Gouaux’s residence on Hyland Drive in Lockport. Freeman was divorced from Gouaux’s daughter Jeanne, who was not at the home.

Once inside, police believe the shotgun-wielding gunman shot Phillip Gouaux in the throat, killed Gouaux’s wife and shot his other daughter Andrea.

The councilman was able to make the initial 911 call before he was rushed with Andrea to University Hospital in New Orleans. They are listed in critical, but stable condition.

Immediately after, Freeman drove some 15 miles north to Raceland and the home of Bourgeois on the 2900 block of La. 308. Bourgeois was the CEO of St. Anne General Hospital since 1988 where Freeman worked as a registered nurse before being terminated in 2011, according to Webre.

Inside the Bourgeois residence, police said Freeman killed Bourgeois with a close range shotgun blast. Bourgeois’s wife Ann was also shot in the leg and is listed in stable condition.

Three hospitals where Freeman worked in years past, Terrebonne General Medical Center, Thibodaux Regional Medical Center and Ochsner St. Anne General Hospital, were on lockdown while officers searched for Freeman.

Parked along U.S. 90 sometime before 10:20 p.m., Freeman shot himself in the head with the same shotgun used in the slayings, police said.

The search for Freeman led authorities to his Houma home, where they found his wife, Denise Taylor Freeman, dead in the bathtub, Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Jerry Larpenter said. Her cause of death hasn’t been determined, but Freeman is suspected of killing her as well.

Webre described a “difficult” custody conflict between Ben Freeman and Phillip Gouaux’s daughter. He noted Freeman was mandated by a court to have supervised visits with the four children he fathered with the daughter.

Freeman has also plead guilty to harassment charges and had multiple protective orders filed by his ex-wife, according to Webre. The last of those orders expired less than a month ago.

“Clearly, there has been a very difficult and complicated divorce/custody issue going on,” Webre said in a late-night news conference Thursday.

The Jefferson Parish Coroner ruled the cause of death was asphyxia (strangulation) due to suffocation and drowning for Denise Freeman. Authorities believe she was the first victim killed.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Man (Westfield, IL)

male

WESTVILLE — A performance evaluation between a local chemical company president and a longtime employee turned deadly the day after Christmas.

About 2:30 p.m. Thursday, a call of shots fired came into Vermilion County’s 911 center from DynaChem Inc., a chemical company south of Westville, said Vermilion County Sheriff Pat Hartshorn.

DynaChem’s president had been doing a performance evaluation of an employee who had worked at the facility for more than 20 years, Hartshorn said, when the worker pulled a handgun from a briefcase. He shot his boss twice — once in the head and once in the hip — and then turned the gun on himself, taking his own life, according to Hartshorn.

Keith Rife, president and CEO of DynaChem, according to the company’s website, did not suffer life-threatening injuries, Hartshorn said. Rife was rushed by ambulance to Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana.

The employee, chemist Wayne Woodson of Georgetown, was pronounced dead at the scene. Woodson is listed on DynaChem’s website as its director of new technologies.

“All we know is something went wrong in the performance evaluation,” Hartshorn said.

Hartshorn said Rife managed to get out of the office on his own and into a hallway where other employees helped him and called 911.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Yvone Tran (Garden Grove, CA)

Yvone Tran1

ORIGINAL POST, DEC. 26, 9:44 A.M.: Garden Grove Police suspect a murder-suicide is the cause of today’s early morning fatal shootings of a 51-year-old Vietnamese man and his 39-year-old Vietnamese wife.

“Family members told investigators that the couple was having marital problems and they were talking about a divorce,” says Lt. Jeff Nightengale, the police department’s spokesman.

At 4:16 a.m. this morning, dispatchers received a 9-1-1 “hang up” call, according to Nightengale, who adds a relative of the unidentified husband then called back on the police business line to say the man may have shot his wife and then himself.

Officers arrived to the residence in the 15000 block of Sail Avenue to find the husband and wife, who also has not been identified, suffering from gunshot wounds, said Nightengale, adding that paramedics later pronounced both dead at the scene.

The couple had two children, a 17-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy, but it is not yet clear if they were home or at another family member’s house at the time of the shootings, Nightengale noted.

UPDATE, DEC. 29, 6:44 P.M.: The county coroner’s office has identified the couple from the recent murder-suicide in their Garden Grove home.

They were 51-year-old Thanh Vuong, who died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot after shooting dead his 39-year-old wife, Yvone Tran, the coroner said.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Mong Thuy Thi Doan (Dorchester County, SC)

female

A 32-year-old man bought crack cocaine before fatally shooting his girlfriend and then himself in a murder-suicide in the Dorchester Manor subdivision, authorities reported Tuesday.

Dorchester County Coroner Chris Nisbet identified the couple as Du Xuan Dao, a 32-year-old Vietnamese man, and Mong Thuy Thi Doan, a 27-year-old Vietnamese woman.

Sheriff’s deputies were called to the couple’s home on Dorchester Manor Boulevard around 6 p.m. Monday for a welfare check, Chief Deputy Sam Richardson said.

Dao and Doan were found dead inside the single-story brick house with gunshot wounds to their heads, Nisbet said. Authorities believe they died Christmas Day.

Dorchester County Coroner Chris Nisbet identified the couple as Du Xuan Dao, a 32-year-old Vietnamese man, and Mong Thuy Thi Doan, a 27-year-old Vietnamese woman.

Sheriff’s deputies were called to the couple’s home on Dorchester Manor Boulevard around 6 p.m. Monday for a welfare check, Chief Deputy Sam Richardson said.

Dao and Doan were found dead inside the single-story brick house with gunshot wounds to their heads, Nisbet said. Authorities believe they died Christmas Day.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Teresa Bickley (Logan, OH)

female

LOGAN, Ohio – The man police say shot a Logan woman to death and then turned the gun on himself Christmas night has died from his own gunshot wound.

Hocking County Coroner tells 10TV that Phillip Loschiavo, 30, was pronounced dead at Grant Medical Center at 7:53 p.m. Friday.

On Christmas evening around 6 p.m., police say Loschaivo shot and killed Teresa Bickley, 30, in the parking lot of Hocking Mall in Logan.

Bickley died at the scene.

Loschiavo then shot himself. He was rushed to Grant Medical Center in critical condition at the time.

Police say Loschiavo blamed Bickley for allegedly interfering in his marriage. Investigators say Loschiavo’s estranged wife agreed to meet him in the parking lot of the Hocking Mall in Logan — believing a public meeting place would be safe. Bickley went along to support Loshaivo’s wife. His wife was not injured in the shooting.

After Loschaivo died, an autopsy was performed Saturday morning. the Hocking County coroner confirms the cause of death as “complications from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.”

Murder/Suicide – Dead – Amerwinfino Lim Jr. (San Lorenzo, CA)

male

SAN LORENZO — A man who Alameda County Sheriff’s investigators say killed his wife Christmas Day and then turned the gun on himself has been identified as Amerwinfino Lim Jr., 40.

An autopsy conducted Thursday on Lim showed that he died of a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, according to the Alameda County Coroner’s office.

A separate autopsy for Lim’s 36-year-old wife — who the Sheriff’s Office identified as Violeta Aragon — is slated to take place on Friday, a coroner’s spokeswoman said.

Aragon was shot multiple times about 2 a.m. in the garage of a small yellow house on the 1800 block of Via Amigos. The shooting was likely sparked by some sort of “marital discord” between the couple, Sheriff’s Sgt. J.D. Nelson said.

He declined to discuss details or elaborate on why the fatal shooting took place due to the sensitive nature of the case, but did say the couple did not have custody issues, had not filed for divorce and that no restraining order had been filed within the household.

The shooting occurred with three children ranging in age from 11 to 17 years and two grandparents home at the time of the shooting.

One of the couple’s sons was inside the garage and witnessed the shooting, Nelson said.

Murder/Attempted Suicide – Killed – Virginia Campos (San Antonio, TX)

Virginia Lopez-Campos

SAN ANTONIO — The woman who was killed in a suspected murder-suicide Tuesday near Calaveras Lake has been identified as Virginia Campos, 47.

Campos died of a gunshot wound to the head, according to the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s office, which has listed the death as a homicide.

The couple lived in the 9900 block of New Sulphur Springs Road, where deputies arrived Tuesday afternoon after reports that a man had shot his wife two times, killing her, and then tried to kill himself.

The husband, who has not been named, was taken to the intensive care unit at San Antonio Military Medical Center. The couple’s adult daughter and 2-year-old grandchild were there when the shooting occurred, authorities said.

Deputies had previously responded to domestic disturbances at the home, said Paul Berry, spokesman for the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said the couple’s adult daughter was at the residence but was in the driveway when the shooting occurred.

The daughter told investigators she did not see her father shoot her mother. But she did see him exit the home with an apparent gunshot wound before entering a large shed and shooting himself again, she told authorities.

“She did see the father with the gun pointed at himself,” said sheriff’s office spokesman Paul Berry, adding that deputies have previously responded to calls “of a domestic nature” at the home.

SAN ANTONIO — A woman was shot to death Tuesday evening and a man sent to the hospital after what authorities described as an attempted murder-suicide.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Tammy Black (Virginia Beach, VA)

Tammy Black

UPDATE 12/23: Police identified the suspect as 45-year-old Dennie Black and the victim as 45-year-old Tammy Black of the 3500 block of Shore Drive.

Dennie Black has been an instructor at the Navy’s regional training academy for law enforcement since July 2011, Navy officials told 13News Now.

VIRGINIABEACH — A husband and wife died Sunday afternoon after they got into a fight at The Chesapeake House on Shore Drive, near the Lesner Bridge.

Police said they got a call about a firearms violation at about 3:30 p.m. When they got to the apartments, they cleared the complex and found a woman dead inside an apartment. Later, they found her husband’s body outside of the building.

Officers said that the situation grew from a domestic altercation between the couple.

On Sunday, Dennie Black had a different message. At 12:30, he posted on Facebook that the truth about his marriage was about to come out. “Tammy, I hope you’re happy!” he wrote.

Three hours later, both were dead. Dennie Black, 45, is believed to have shot his wife at the condo they had shared off Shore Drive. Then he shot himself and fell off the sixth-floor balcony, according to police reports and the medical examiner’s office.

Friends and family, who say the shooting came after months of turmoil, are questioning events leading to the deaths. On Sunday, friends say, police took Tammy Black, 43, to a magistrate so she could seek an emergency protective order against her husband.

Michelle Bryant, Tammy Black’s sister, said her sister called on Sunday, telling her she was on her way to the magistrate and admitting that she was scared to go. Black called back a little while later to say her request had been denied.

In October, Tammy Black decided she wanted to end the marriage, Bryant said, and they started the divorce process. Dennie Black had moved out of their condo at the Chesapeake House.

Cindy Banwarth, Tammy Black’s friend, said Tammy Black told her that her husband was abusive and had threatened to kill her and himself. Banwarth said Tammy Black didn’t want to report him to police because of fear of what it would do to his career.
