ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Pinellas County Sheriff's Office homicide detectives are investigating what appears to be a murder suicide.
The bodies of 52-year-old Shelley Gold and 51-year-old Thomas Cappadona were discovered by a friend of Gold's at about 2 p.m. on Saturday. Detectives say the friend had arrived at the couple's home to take Gold out to lunch.
