Bodies found in Long Branch, N.J. home

Monmouth County authorities are investigating the death of two people found inside a home in Long Branch.

But authorities don't know yet whether it's a double homicide or a murder-suicide.

Acting county Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni tells the Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/14sPaqn) that 35-year-old Maria Yolanda Cotejo-Muñoz and 33-year-old Feredis Venturo, 33, were found dead Monday in his apartment.

Gramiccioni said the two victims were romantically involved, but could not disclose a cause of death for either person.

Friends tell the newspaper that Cotejo-Muñoz had emigrated from Chile about 10 years ago. She was the mother of a 12-year-old girl who lives in Chile and a 4-year-old boy who lived with her in Long Branch.
