Florida Family Of 5 Dead In Apparent Murder-Suicide
Orlando police say they found five people dead inside a Lake Nona home Tuesday of an apparent murder-suicide.
Officers responded to a call for a wellness check at a home located at the 9800 block of Lake District Lane around 1 p.m. Tuesday, according to Orlando Police Department spokeswoman Andrea Otero.
Officers made entry to the home where they found five people — three adults and two children — dead inside.
Neighbor Justin Rossilini said he doesn’t think the deaths happened within the last couple of days.
“There’s no way this happened today, we have been home all day,” he said. “There is no way this happened yesterday — we were home all day yesterday, there’s no way this happened yesterday.”
Rossilini said he and the other neighbors told investigators that they do not remember hearing anything at the house going as far back as the weekend.
“Nope, no neighbors did,” he said. “All the neighbors that were out just now, everyone was like, ‘Did you hear anything?’ Everyone was like, ‘Nope.'”
The owner of the home said that she had spoken with her tenants recently because their lease had expired and there was a disagreement about when they would be leaving the property.
Authorities say the investigation is ongoing.
