CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif. (AP) - Three people were found shot to death in a Riverside County home and investigators suspect a double murder-suicide.
Cathedral City Police Lt. Charles Robinson says officers were called to the house in Cathedral City late Wednesday morning.
They discovered a woman and her adult daughter shot to death in a bed. In another bedroom, the body of the older woman's common-law husband was found with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Robinson says a note containing an apparent confession and a handgun were found near the man's body.
Investigators say the woman had been recently diagnosed with a terminal illness, and her common-law husband was upset over her plans to divide her assets after her death.
The daughter was visiting from Florida to help put her mother's affairs in order.
