A dead woman was found inside a car in the parking lot of a Walmart in Pompano Beach Saturday, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.
The incident is being investigated as a murder-suicide after officials linked the woman’s death to the suicide of a man who was found floating in a Coral Springs canal around the same time, the BSO said.
The 35-year-old woman was found shortly before 10 a.m. in a dark colored four-door sedan, according to a release.
Officials said the suspect in her death was also found dead, floating in a canal at 9904 Twin Lakes Drive. According to the report, the man left a suicide note detailing what he had done.
The pair had been involved in a relationship that had recently ended, according to investigators. They said they believe the man killed the woman in Pompano Beach and later killed himself in Coral Springs.
The two individuals have not been identified pending notification of their family members, officials said.
