There’s a Devil Loose: California Assistant US Attorney ‘Shoots Dead his Wife Just Four Months After They Married and Then Kills himself’ in Tragic Murder-Suicide

Timothy Delgado, assistant US attorney for the Eastern District of California, is suspected of killing his wife of just four months, Tamara Delgado, and then himself inside their Granite Bay home on Sunday. The victim is survived by her grown daughter and her young son from a past relationship.

A federal prosecutor in California fatally shot his wife before killing himself Sunday in their home, authorities said.

Timothy Delgado, 43, was an assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of California. He shot his 45-year-old wife Tamara Delgado in a murder-suicide in Granite Bay, according to a Placer County Sheriff’s Office statement.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento said Monday it is cooperating with the investigation and referred questions to the sheriff’s office. Delgado appears to have prosecuted narcotics and firearms cases, a search of the office’s website shows.

Tamara Delgado’s mother called the sheriff’s office to check on the couple, bringing deputies to their home, according to spokeswoman Angela Musallam. She would not say if there had been other calls to the residence or provide further information.

Granite Bay is about 30 miles (48. kilometers) northeast of Sacramento.
