A New Smyrna Beach couple was found deceased Sunday in what appears to be a murder-suicide after deputies were called to a home in the 800 block of Bluefish Avenue to do a well-being check.
Deputies found the homeowner, Joseph Patti, 58, and resident Sherrie Bolin, 54, deceased in the residence. Preliminary investigation indicates that the deaths were the result of a murder-suicide by gunshot.
Family members have been notified of the deaths. Autopsies are being conducted today. More information will be released when it becomes available.
