A man and woman were found dead inside a Commack motel Wednesday in an apparent murder-suicide, Suffolk County police said.
Investigators believe the man killed the woman and then fatally shot himself, police said. Both bodies were discovered inside a hotel room at Commack Motor Inn on Jericho Turnpike at 12:33 p.m., police said.
An employee who went to inspect the room after the pair failed to check out made the discovery, police said.
Their relationship has not yet been disclosed, and their identities have not been released, pending notification of next of kin.
How the woman died was also not revealed. Police said the Suffolk County Medical Examiner will determine her cause of death.
