ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Authorities have released the names of two adults and a child whose bodies were found in an Albuquerque apartment in an apparent murder-suicide.
Police say officers went to the apartment around 10 a.m. Sunday after a family friend found the bodies and notified authorities.
The woman says the family failed to show up for an appointment and ran from the apartment screaming that someone had killed her cousin.
Police investigators say it appears 45-year-old Tran Trinh Van fatally shot his 39-year-old wife Cam Thi To and his 11-year-old stepdaughter Nhi Nguyen before turning the gun on himself.
They say it appears Tran had a history of domestic violence against Cam and she had recently asked him to move out.
