Gwinnett County Police police said they are investigating a murder and suicide involving a man and his daughter that occurred inside Lawrenceville’s Bethesda Park this past weekend.
Cpl. Collin Flynn said an officer was conducting a random area check of the park about 11:30 p.m. Saturday when he located a vehicle in the back of the parking lot. When the officer approached the vehicle, he discovered the body of Ignacio Ramos, 45, and his daughter, Valeria Ramos, 11, inside. Both people were deceased from at least one gunshot wound, Flynn said.
Investigators believe the elder Ramos killed his daughter before committing suicide. Detectives are continuing to work to identify a motive for this incident, however.
