A compilation of daily news articles about intimate violence homicides and suicides from around the United States. I wonder when society is going to realize intimate violence makes victims of us all.

Travis County Sheriff’s deputies said today that man and a woman were found shot to death in a murder-suicide Monday evening in the 10000 block of McAngus Road in southern Travis County near the Austin-Bergstrom Airport.
Somebody found 30-year-old Victor Colombo and 29-year-old Rita Marie Granados dead inside the trailer where Granados lived about 5:21 p.m. Monday and called 911, said Roger Wade, a spokesman with the Travis County Sheriff’s Office.
An investigation and medical examiner’s reports show that Colombo shot Granados and then shot himself, Wade said. Colombo was an estranged ex-boyfriend of Granados’, he said.
Just a few weeks ago, Wade said, deputies had been called out to the residence on a criminal trespassing call when Colombo was trying to get into Granados’ trailer. He was released on a warning after Granados and deputies told him never to come back, Wade said.
