Two dead in murder-suicide in New Port Richey

NEW PORT RICHEY — Authorities were investigating an apparent murder-suicide Sunday night after the bodies of a man and woman were found inside a home.

Deputies with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office went to the single-family home at 9502 Paver Court to do a welfare check after they received a call from someone close to the family who was concerned because the woman could not be reached.

Deputies arrived at 7:10 p.m. and found the bodies. Both had gunshot wounds and one of the wounds appeared to have been self-inflicted, the Sheriff's Office said. Their identities have not yet been released by authorities.

The home is in a gated community east of Little Road and south of Ridge Road. It doesn't appear anyone else was home at the time of the shootings, deputies said.
