The two people found dead in an apparent murder-suicide at the Commack Motor Inn last week have been identified as 31-year-old Omar Torres and 29-year-old Yesenia Abreu, both from Glendale, Queens.
Suffolk County police believe Torres killed Abreu before turning a gun on himself last Wednesday afternoon.
Their lifeless bodies were discovered by a motel employee who went to inspect the room after the pair failed to checkout.
Nearly a week into the investigation, police are only clear about how Torres died—a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Abreu’s cause of death remains undetermined, police said, adding that detectives are still awaiting autopsy results from the Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s office.
A police spokeswoman said Tuesday that Torres and Abreu had gone through occasions in which they were romantically involved.
Investigators are still trying to determine where Torres got the gun and how much time elapsed from when Abreu was killed and Torres committed suicide.
Torres did not leave a suicide note, the spokeswoman said.
Neither Torres nor Abreu were reported missing prior to their deaths, police said.
