Couple found fatally shot in bathroom
PITTSBURGH (AP) — A 25-year-old woman was found fatally shot in a running shower and her ex-boyfriend has died of a gunshot wound in what police are calling a murder-suicide in a Pittsburgh suburb.
Allegheny County homicide detectives say Alisha Virtue was found about 5 p.m. Tuesday when her mother, sister and 2-year-old son returned home. They heard the shower running and assumed she was getting ready for work, only to find her dead.
Police say the relatives also found Virtue’s ex-boyfriend — whose identity wasn’t immediately being released today — on the bathroom floor.
That man had a gunshot wound to the head and died early today at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh.
Police say Virtue and her ex were both at the home when Virtue’s relatives left about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.
