On April 22, 2021 Mariposa County Deputies responded to the area of Yosemite West, a community within Mariposa County, for a report of a possible deceased person. Upon arrival deputies confirmed two deceased individuals: one adult male and one adult female, who we believe are visitors to Mariposa County.
Mariposa County Sheriff Detectives are working the case along with the California Department of Justice Fresno Crime Lab. As of now, preliminary evidence collected during the investigation have led investigators to believe this is a case of murder suicide. At this time, we believe the female shot the male multiple times before taking her own life. There are no additional persons of interest.

The investigation is still in the very early stages, additional details will be released once the investigation is complete.
