The Volusia County Sheriff's Office is investigating what appears to be a murder-suicide in a home near Ormond-by-the-Sea.

The deceased are: Gail Ann Still, 57 (DOB 5/26/1961), and Ronald Alan Still Sr., 59 (DOB 10/26/1959).

Deputies received a call around 5:40 p.m. Tuesday to 26 Seabridge Drive after the couple's daughter received a text message from her father indicating he and his wife were dead. Upon arrival deputies discovered both parties deceased inside the house.

The initial investigation suggests Mr. Still killed his wife, then himself. "This is the type of tragedy you fear when you respond to a potential domestic violence situation," Sheriff Mike Chitwood said Tuesday night. "My heart goes out to the family and friends who are left to deal with their loss."

No additional information on the case is available at this time but will be provided at a later time.
