Murder-suicide suspected in 3 Antelope Valley deaths

Two women and a man found dead this morning in separate locations in Lancaster and Palmdale may have been involved in a murder-suicide, authorities said.

One woman was discovered in the 38700 block of 31st Street East in Palmdale and the other was found in the 45300 block of Beech Avenue in Lancaster. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

The man, a possible suspect in the murder-suicide, was found with an apparent gunshot wound in a Mustang at Avenue E and Sierra Highway, said Lt. Ed Stewart of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

"There is a relationship between all three individuals," Stewart said. "It's not a random act. It was probably planned, for whatever reason."
