Glendale police investigate 2 deaths as possible murder-suicide
Glendale police are investigating two early-morning deaths they say are a murder-suicide, including the death of a man they say jumped onto the 134 Freeway from an overpass, a police spokeswoman said Wednesday.
Authorities received a 911 call around 3:30 a.m. about an unknown problem at a residence on Northwoods Lane, police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot said.
When police arrived, they found the door to the residence open and the body of a man in his 50s inside, she said. The cause of death was not immediately known.
About 45 minutes later, Glendale police were notified the California Highway Patrol was investigating a man’s body on the 134 Freeway. The man appeared to have jumped off the Harvey Drive overpass, officials said.
That death is being investigated as a possible suicide, Lightfoot said.
“We believe [the deaths] are connected,” she said. “Based on that 911 conversation, we believe that they knew each other.”
