Mounting Debt, Divorce Likely Factors In Shooting

"OGDEN, UT — Ogden police confirmed Saturday they are looking into the fatal shooting of a man and woman Friday as a likely murder/suicide.

"Ogden Lt. Steve Zaccardi said investigators are still determining the nature of the shooting but are `leaning` toward a murder/suicide from the information available. Ogden police also said Friday the man was the suspect in the case.

"The deceased, both in their 50s, died early Friday evening inside a home at 548 N. Eccles Avenue. A woman in her 20s was also shot in the hand at the home. All three are related, police confirmed, but they didn't say how. Police declined Saturday to identify those killed.

"Several neighbors said the deceased were husband and wife, adding the injured girl is their daughter. The wife had filed for divorce about a week before the shooting, neighbors who spoke with her brother told [reporters], about a week before the shooting because of disagreements over finances and mounting debt."
