Two found dead in apparent Murder-suicide

The Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an apparent Murder-suicide case.

On April 22, 2021, Mariposa County Deputies responded to the area of Yosemite West, a community within Mariposa County, for a report of a possible deceased person.

Upon arrival deputies confirmed two deceased individuals, one was an adult male, and an adult female.

Authorities believe both are Mariposa visitors.

Mariposa County Sheriff Detectives are working the case along with the California Department of Justice Fresno Crime Lab.

Preliminary evidence collected during the investigation has led investigators to believe this is a murder-suicide case.

At this time, we believe the female shot the male multiple times before taking her own life. There are no additional persons of interest.

The names of the victim and suspect are being withheld until next of kin notification is complete.
