CARLSBAD, Calif. — Police have released the names of two people who died in a Feb. 13 murder-suicide, according to authorities.

A call from Australia Saturday led Carlsbad police to the Village Apartments, where they found the bodies of a 33-year-old man and a 44-year-old woman. Officers had been informed that someone inside the home had sent a message to a family member indicating that he had killed his ex-girlfriend and was going to kill himself.

Police identified the pair Friday as Mary Knott and Hilton Williams. Both were living in Carlsbad, police said. No further details were released.
