On Wednesday morning an FBI agent and his estranged wife were found deceased in Crownsville, Maryland, in what law enforcement officials are saying was a murder-suicide on the same day the pair were expected back in divorce court.
Authorities responded to a report of a possible domestic assault in progress shortly after 8:00 a.m., the 911 caller notified emergency services on behalf of a woman who “was being threatened by her recently estranged husband,” the Capital Gazette reports.
When law enforcement officers arrived on the scene they found a man and woman outside a residence who both had stab wounds. Police added the man also had what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
FBI Special Agent David Raynor, 52, of Annapolis, and Donna Fisher, 54, of Crownsville, were pronounced dead at the scene.
Dave Fitz, FBI spokesman, said Raynor had been a special agent with the bureau since 1996. He declined comment on Special Agent Raynor’s duties during his time at the bureau.
An autopsy will be used to determine the exact cause of death, according to police, CBS News reported.
Officials urge anyone with more information to call the Baltimore FBI office at 410-277-6689.
