In May, a man and a woman, apparently related in some way, were found dead on a ranch in Amador County. Police concluded that the deaths were a murder-suicide.
The woman was said to have lost her husband before her death.
No suspect has been arrested in the woman’s killing, but detectives with the San Jose Police Department say they’ve determined that her husband was killed in an accident and she then ended her own life. The police investigation is ongoing.
Meanwhile, the victim in the case that’s still unsolved remains missing. If you have information on the man’s whereabouts, the police say to call (408) 820-2263.
There is a $25,000 reward for information leading to the safe return of the victim.
The woman in the San Jose case was 28 years old, roughly 6 feet tall and 120 lbs. She had a tattoo on her upper left arm. (See the story at sltrib.com/findings.)
