North Las Vegas police said today that it appears the deaths of two people whose bodies were found in a remote desert area near the Las Vegas Beltway and Losee Road was a murder-suicide.
“At this point, that is where the investigation is pointing,” Sgt. Justin Ryan said.
Ryan said the investigation might lead in a different direction if people come forward with credible information.
On Monday afternoon, police found two bodies near a red pickup at the base of the Sheep Mountains.
Ryan said police were still trying to determine the relationship between the man and the woman found a few miles north of the interstate.
The Clark County coroner’s office identified one of the deceased as Jeffrey L. Lingle, 38, of Las Vegas. The woman had not yet been identified by midafternoon.
