A preliminary autopsy report released Tuesday from the Office of the Medical Investigator in Albuquerque confirmed double-homicide suspect Jody Romero’s death was a suicide.

A “Report of Findings” released Tuesday from the Office of the Medical Investigator in Albuquerque ruled Romero’s manner of death as a “suicide.”

The full autopsy report and a toxicology report is pending.

Here are some of the pertinent categories from the preliminary report released Tuesday:

  • Cause of death: Gunshot wound of head
  • Manner of death: Suicide
  • Date of injury: n/a (left blank on report)
  • How injury occurred: Shot self with rifle

Romero’s body was found May 16 in a Truchas home. Rio Arriba County Sheriff Tommy Rodella later that day announced Romero’s body appeared to have been dead for some time and he appeared to have shot himself with an assault rifle.

Romero, 34, had fled police since a warrant was issued in early April charging him with having shot to death Delfino DeFernandez, 31, and Amanda Romero, 24 and no relation to Jody Romero.
