#deadwitness ~ Assistant US Attorney Timothy Delgado with wife Tamara


A federal prosecutor in California fatally shot his wife before turning the gun on himself in a suspected murder-suicide, authorities said.

Assistant US Attorney Timothy Delgado, 43, gunned down his wife, Tamara Delgado, 45, on Sunday at the couple’s home in Granite Bay and then took his own life, the Placer County Sheriff’s Office tweeted Monday.

“We are investigating yesterday’s homicide as a murder/suicide,” department officials said.

Detectives responded to the couple’s home on Sunday and shut down the area nearby as a homicide investigation was conducted. There was no ongoing danger to the public, sheriff officials tweeted Sunday.
