On May 5, 2011, at approximately 10:00 a.m., Long Beach Police responded to a residence in the 3500 block of Los Coyotes Diagonal regarding a deceased female inside and a male subject threatening to commit suicide.
When officers arrived, they discovered a 63-year-old male subject who had sustained stab wounds, and an 88-year-old female in another room bleeding. Long Beach Fire Department paramedics arrived and pronounced the female deceased, and transport the male subject to a local hospital for treatment. The male subject underwent emergency surgery and is listed in critical condition.
The preliminary investigation revealed that the male subject had harmed the woman, causing her death, before attempting to take his own life.
Detectives believe that the male and female subjects were related, but are withholding their identities until next of kin is notified.
Anyone who may have any information regarding this incident is urged to contact Long Beach Police Homicide Detectives Malcolm Evans and Todd Johnson at (562) 570-7244.
