Diane Newlander, a 73-year-old white woman, was shot and killed Tuesday, May 4, in the 400 block of South Swall Drive in Beverly Hills, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.
Beverly Hills police officers discovered Newlander's body and the body of a man authorities believe to be her husband after going to their home on a "welfare check" Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.
"All indications are showing that this couple were the victims of a murder-suicide," Sgt. Renato Moreno said. "There is no threat to the community."
Detectives had not determined what sparked the violence, police said.
