"NORCO, CA — A 72-year-old Norco man shot his 35-year-old wife to death and then killed himself Monday, the Riverside County coroner’s office confirmed Tuesday, May 22.
"The couple were identified Tuesday as Roger and Katy Winch. Roger Winch was listed as a victim of a suicide, and Katy Winch was listed as a victim of a homicide.
"Anthony Mauro, who lives across the street, said Tuesday that he heard what sounded like two shotgun blasts a few seconds apart sometime after 6 p.m. Monday. He said sheriff's deputies arrived almost at the same time.
"A Riverside County Sheriff’s Department news release said deputies responded to a report of unknown trouble at 7:01 p.m. When no one answered the door at the house on 4091 Crestview Drive, deputies went into the backyard and discovered the bodies in the patio area.
"Mauro said he had known the couple since they moved to the rural area of Norco near Ingalls Park 10 years ago.
"`It's real upsetting,` Mauro said.
"A man who answered the door at the Winch residence declined to comment.
"There appeared to be blood stains on the white door of the home."
