Deaths Believed to be Murder-Suicide
Police think boyfriend killed girlfriend, then hung himself
Police now believe that the deaths of two people in South Anchorage were the result of a murder-suicide. 40-year-old Tae Won Ro and 33-year-old Yoo Jin Kim were found dead inside their home on Bona Kim Loop Monday. A neighbor reported hearing noises coming from the house on Friday evening.
Autopsies were performed and showed that Kim died from multiple stab wounds and Ro from strangulation due to hanging.
“Detectives now believe that after killing Kim, Ro hung himself,” said Lieutenant Dave Parker of the Anchorage Police Department. “The crime scene was confined to the residence, and we understand that both individuals lived there as boyfriend and girlfriend.”
Police say their investigation is continuing.
