Gwinnett County Police said they were investigating a murder and suicide involving a man and his daughter that took place in Bethesda Park in Lawrenceville over the weekend.
Cpl. Collin Flynn said an officer was doing a random check of the park area around 11:30 p.m. Saturday when he located a vehicle in the back of the parking lot. When the officer approached the vehicle, he found the bodies of Ignacio Ramos, 45, and his daughter, Valeria Ramos, 11, inside. Both people died of at least one gunshot wound, Flynn said.
Investigators believe the elder Ramos killed his daughter before committing suicide. However, detectives continue to work to identify the motive for this incident.
