UPDATE: Investigators believe Leonard J. Foster shot partner Lisa R. Malone and then turned the gun on himself, after both were reported to Tualatin police as suspected embezzlers.

A man and a woman died Wednesday night in an apparent murder-suicide in a home on Bull Mountain, the Washington County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies were called to a residence in the 13600 block of Willow Top Lane in the Bull Mountain area around 10:38 p.m. Wednesday. Family members were concerned that they had not heard from the home's residents, Leonard J. Foster, 48, and Lisa R. Malone, 48, for some time, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Deputies determined they did not have legal justification to enter the home, although family members reported hearing gunshots while on the phone with 911. However, just after 1 a.m. Thursday, the family members entered and discovered both Foster and Malone dead.

Washington County Detective Robert Rookhuyzen said investigators believe Foster shot Malone and then himself.
