A former pro hockey player and a criminal justice advocate were found slain in a California condo in a killing now being investigated as a double homicide, according to reports.
Wendi Miller, 48, and Darren Partch, 38, were found dead on Sunday night when Partch’s roommate walked into their Newport Beach condo and discovered both of the bodies, KTLA reported.
The pair were last seen at a bar in Laguna Beach together at about 1:45 a.m. on Saturday, and friends told the television station that Miller was going to give Partch a ride back to his place.
Police believe their slayings were an “isolated incident” and that there’s no threat to people in the area.
Partch played minor-league hockey around the country, including for the San Diego Gulls, the news website Patch reported.
Miller founded an advocacy organization called Wings for Justice, which sought to protect children who were in the family court system.
Miller’s son wrote in a Facebook post that his mother had been shot to death and “did not suffer.”
“I have no doubt in my mind that she was loved on earth and I’m happy that she gets to be loved even better in heaven. I love you mom,” he wrote.
The relationship between Miller and Partch was not immediately clear. No arrests have been made in the slayings.
