Two killed in apparent murder-suicide identified

A man and woman killed in an apparent murder-suicide in the northwest valley Thursday were identified Monday.

Edith Corona, 19, of Las Vegas, died from a gunshot wound to the head. Her death was ruled a homicide, according to the Clark County coroner’s office.

Jose Zergara Rodriguez, 20, was also killed in the incident. His cause and manner of death was pending.

A family member called Las Vegas police about 5:30 p.m. Thursday and reported that two people had gunshot wounds in a home in the 6800 block of Elm Creek Drive, near Rainbow Boulevard and Gowan Road.

Officers found a man and a woman suffering from gunshot wounds. They were taken to University Medical Center where they were later pronounced dead.

Police said last week that one victim might have suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Homicide detectives are investigating the case.
