The preliminary findings of an inquiry conducted by the State Bureau of inquiry suggest that a murder-suicide is to blame for the deaths of a police officer with the Fayetteville Police Department and his wife. According to the findings of a preliminary autopsy performed by a medical examiner’s office, the officer, Domingo Tavarez-Rodriguez, 53, died from a single gunshot wound, while his wife, Yenitza Arroyo-Tavarez, 44, died of numerous gunshot wounds. Both victims were found dead in their residence.
According to prior statements made by the police, Tavarez-Rodriguez did not show up for his shift at work, which prompted officers to do a wellness check and find the couple at their residence on Friday evening. The original speculation from the police was that the deaths were the result of a double homicide. Because of the involvement of a law enforcement official, the State Bureau of Investigation was called in to take charge of the investigation.
According to a news release issued by the SBI on Wednesday, there is no evidence to suggest that anybody else was engaged in the incident, nor is there any evidence to suggest that there is a threat to the community or to law enforcement. The inquiry is still underway, and there is currently no new information that can be shared with the public.
