Sonoma County, Calif., sheriff’s detectives are investigating the deaths of a man and a woman found early Wednesday (March 27) at a coast campground as a possible murder-suicide, an agency spokesman said.
According to the Napa Valley Register, the bodies were found at Ocean Cove Campground, near Timber Cove, by deputies called there at 5 a.m. for a domestic violence complaint and possible shooting, sheriff’s Sgt. Spencer Crum said.
Authorities haven’t released the names of the couple. Detectives still are investigating what happened and how they died, Crum said.
The couple were believed to be annual visitors to the campground, said Timber Cove Fire Chief Erich Lynn. The chief, a local resident and veteran volunteer in the coastal region, said he’d spoken to them over the years but didn’t know them.
“I’ve seen these people driving in and out of there for 10 years, a long time,” Lynn said.
Ocean Cove, a private campground and store, sits atop a Highway 1 bluff on about 20 acres that stretch down to the ocean. The grounds include about 100 sites for RVs and tents.
The campground is currently closed. However, staff members and others have been getting ready for the annual spring opening just days away, with some people, including the couple, already camping, Lynn said.
