Man, woman found dead in Borrego Springs home


BORREGO SPRINGS, Calif. -- A man and a woman were found dead in a home in Borrego Springs Wednesday, prompting a homicide investigation, authorities said.

Deputies responded Wednesday to the 2900 block of Double O Road, where a woman had reported she hadn't seen her neighbors since Friday, according to Lt. Chad Boudreau of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Unit.

Deputies and Borrego Springs Fire Department personnel entered the home and found the man and woman dead, both with trauma to their bodies, Boudreau said.

"There are no outstanding suspects at this time," he said.

It was unclear if the deaths were believed to be the result of a murder-suicide.

The San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office will perform an autopsy to determine how the man and woman died, Boudreau said.

Their names were withheld pending next-of-kin notification.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Sheriff's Homicide Unit at 858-285-6330 or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
