Coroner identifies woman dead in murder-suicide near Valley View and Oakey

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Police are investigating a murder-suicide after they discovered two bodies on Tuesday night inside a home near Valley View and Oakey.

Around 7:10 p.m., patrol officers responded to a residence located on the 2100 block Plaza Del Padre to conduct a welfare check.

A co-worker reported the resident did not show up for work for several days and had not contacted the employer.

Officers entered the residence and located a deceased male and female who suffered apparent gunshot wounds. 

The coroner identified the woman as 59-year-old Monica Jayne Horan.

The preliminary investigation indicated the two victims were living together and were involved in a domestic relationship. It appears the male shot the female victim and then shot himself.

The Clark County Coroner's Office has identified the male as 69-year-old Robert Hender of Las Vegas.

This is the 84th homicide investigated by the LVMPD in 2014.
