Separated Couple Dead in Murder Suicide

Lots of questions remain after a murder-suicide on the Southeast side leaves a man and woman dead.

It all began around 8:30 Monday Night–when an older Ford truck slammed in to the back of a Saturn Vue along Highway 181 South.

“After the collision, the vehicles stopped outside of a grocery store, where the man driving the truck got out, and allegedly shot and killed the woman driving the sedan” said Roseanne Hughes with the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

At that point, the man turned the gun on himself, taking his own life.

“What we discovered as the two were husband and wife, and had recently separated” Hughes said.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office will release the identity of the pair, once next of kin is notified.
