Two Murder-Suicides in Miami Left Two Husbands and Wives Dead Last Night
Two separate murder-suicides in Miami-Dade County last night left two husbands and wives dead. The first incident involved 69-year-old Luis Yrigoyen who shot his wife before shooting himself while the couple's adult children were in their home downstairs watching a football game. The second incident involved 43-year-old Apolinar Piedra, who shot is wife in their driveway before fleeing in his car and eventually shooting himself.
"They were an older couple in the 60s. They had their children there and I think their grandchildren lived there as well," neighbor Ory Dawes tells WSVN of the elderly couple who was often spotted walking around the neighborhood together.
While the couple's adult children were downstairs in the family home watching a football game, Luis is believed to have shot and killed his wife, Mireya, 65. Neighbors reported hearing yelling and screaming from the house before shots rang out. No one else in the home was injured.
