Update:
Detectives have arrested Gilbert Dugaqua (53-years-old) in this investigation. He faces multiple charges including Murder 2 and Manslaughter.
 
This is now a homicide investigation.
 
The preliminary investigation found that the suspect called Dispatch to report an assault involving an adult male and adult female inside the residence. Detectives have determined the suspect physically assaulted the adult male victim in the upper body. The circumstances surrounding the adult female’s injuries are still being investigated.
 
Alcohol is believed to be a factor.

At 12:14 AM on Thursday, October 3, 2019, a citizen called Police Dispatch to report there had been a disturbance in his home and someone was badly injured.  Officers responded and found a deceased adult male inside.  An adult female in the home was transported to a hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
 
Detectives believe they have made contact with everyone involved.  This appears to be an isolated incident and no one is outstanding.  The manner of death, the cause of the female’s injuries, and the circumstances of everyone’s involvement are still under investigation.
