DOVER - Two suspicious deaths in Dover reported on Tuesday were the result of a homicide and suicide, the Attorney General's Office announced on Wednesday.
According to a press release sent out around 5 p.m., after Amy Molter, 46, was reported missing, police on Monday went to 577 Central Ave., #106, the residence of Ms. Molter's ex-boyfriend, Rudy Ferretti, 41, and attempted to contact Ferretti, but received no answer.
Then on Aug. 11, officers went back and entered Ferretti's apartment where they found Molter deceased on the livingroom floor and Ferretti deceased in his bed, a firearm nearby.
Associate Medical Examiner Dr. Christine James determined the cause of Molter's death was a single gunshot wound to the head, and her manner of death was a homicide. She also determined the cause of Ferretti's death was a single gunshot wound to the head, and his manner of death was suicide.
Although the investigation into the circumstances surrounding these two deaths remains active and ongoing, it appears that Ferretti shot and killed Molter, and then shot and killed himself, the medical examiner's office said.
No additional information is expected to be released.
