Police calling the deaths a murder-suicide

KENDALL, Fla. – A man found his mother and her boyfriend dead inside their Southwest Miami-Dade home as a result of a murder-suicide, Miami-Dade police said.

The incident took place at about 1 p.m. in the 12000 block of Southwest 50th Lane, when Lisette Iglesias’ son found his mom  with an gunshot wound, and her live-in boyfriend Pastor Paez,50, with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, police said.  

Both were pronounced dead at the home.

"That's horrible, it's horrible," Oscar Batista, a neighbor, said.  "I can't believe that happened right here next to my house.  I've lived here over 15 years, and nothing like that has ever happened here before."

A neighbor told Local 10 News that she saw a police officer respond to the home about a week ago.

"I feel sorry, I feel sorry for them," Batista said. "Everything was so calm in this neighborhood until right now."
