OCALA, Fla. — Police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide after a man and woman were found dead in their home. According to OPD, the teens who live in the apartment were the first to find the bodies.
“No child should come home from school and see something like that,” said a neighbor, Patrick Bruce, who was there when the kids discovered the bodies.
A crime scene clean-up company, Accident Cleaners and Restoration, were cleaning up the scene Tuesday at an apartment on SW 31st Avenue in Ocala, where police say 48 year old Jose Rivera and 40 year old Idiomaris Pellot died.
“I came home, and the children were going back and forth around the apartment trying to get in, knocking on the door, knocking on the windows, ringing the doorbells,” said Bruce. “They didn’t speak too much english so I kind of just listened to a few words and I heard ‘morte’
