Deputies investigating murder-suicide

Investigators said they believe the man and woman were married at one point but the man was living in another part of the state at the time.

PLANT CITY, Fla. — Hillsborough County deputies are investigating a murder-suicide in Plant City. 

Law enforcement said they responded to the Magnolia Hill 55+ community around 3 p.m. Friday after getting a vague 911 call.

"The call lasted only a few seconds," Maj. Frank Losat of the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said. "He gave the address and said there was a shooting at this residence, and then the call was disconnected."

When authorities arrived on the scene they said they found that male caller and woman dead inside.

"At some point, the couple that we believe are in this trailer were married," Losat explained.

Neighbors said for the couple of years the woman lived here, she lived alone. They say she'd recently gotten a divorce.

"Got her first alimony check a week ago or two weeks ago, and then this happens," neighbor Dave Teeter said.

Hillsborough County deputies have not released the names of the people involved in this suspected murder-suicide.
