Officers and detectives continue to process evidence and information following Friday’s discovery of two deceased individuals at a residence in Duvall.

While the investigation is still underway, Commander Larry Colagiovanni of the Coalition of Small Police Agencies is able to share that preliminary results indicate that this tragic incident was a murder-suicide. There are still no additional suspects being sought in regard to this case.

The deceased were discovered by an acquaintance of the family who went to check on them after they did not show up to a 4th of July party, and had not been heard from for a few days.

“These types of incidents are tragic and senseless” states Lieutenant Sabourin of the Duvall Police Department in a press release, “unfortunately no community is immune.”

Our detectives will continue to work with the Washington State Patrol Crime Scene Unit and the Medical Examiner’s office to determine the facts of this case. The names of the deceased will not be released pending positive identification.
