What to Know

  • After officers could not make contact with Sanchez, officials went inside the home and found him dead.

The estranged husband of the Weston mother of three, who was found murdered inside her home earlier this week, killed himself following a standoff with police in Central Florida, officials confirmed.

Broward Sheriff’s Office officials said that 39-year-old Angel Sanchez was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound following an incident inside his home in Highlands County on Thursday evening.

According to their report, SWAT officials from the county went to the home of Sanchez – who 34-year-old Carolyn Espinosa had begun the process of filing for divorce from – shortly after Espinosa was found dead inside her San Simeon Circle home on Wednesday.

After officers could not make contact with Sanchez, officials went inside the home and found him dead. Officials did not release additional details on that portion of the case.

Neighbors told NBC 6 Espinosa was a mother of two boys and one girl and had moved to Weston from New Jersey. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family pay several bills, including funeral expenses.

Anyone with additional information in either case is asked to call Broward CrimeStoppers.
