BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County police say a man and woman were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide inside the man’s Bethesda apartment.
Police say a relative had been unable to contact Martin O’Toole, 38, and went to his apartment Saturday morning. There, the relative found the bodies of O’Toole and a woman identified as Hong Trang Tracy Vu. She lived in Silver Spring and was believed to be between 35 and 38 years old.
The victims were found in a bedroom, and police say they both had trauma to their bodies.
The circumstances of their deaths remain under investigation. Police have released few details and have not confirmed the relationship between O’Toole and Vu. Autopsies will be conducted to determine the cause and manner of death.
