OCEANSIDE — The deaths of two people in an Oceanside mobile home earlier this week were determined to be a murder-suicide, according to the Medical Examiner’s Office.
Janet Choe, 59, had been shot once in the head by another person. A 63-year-old man found in the same home had a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his head, authorities said. The man’s name has not been released because his family has not been notified.
Oceanside police were asked to check on the woman’s welfare Wednesday night. When they went to the mobile home on Horizon Lane, officers found the two bodies.
A .357-caliber revolver was found next to the man’s body. His death was ruled a suicide, but no suicide note was found in the home, according to the Medical Examiner’s Office. The woman’s death was ruled a homicide.
Choe was renting a room in Poway but on Tuesday went to the mobile home where she used to live, authorities said.
Police said Choe and the man used to date each other and lived together before Choe moved out. Investigators said a man called to ask officers to check on her welfare. He told police he had reported her missing to the Sheriff’s Department.
