A male patient and a woman who had once lived with him died in a double suicide or murder-suicide at a long-term care facility in Sycamore, police said Wednesday.

Mario Engoglia and Susan Triezenberg died Tuesday at Kindred Hospital. Police said in a news release Wednesday that the recovery of a handgun and other evidence suggested "one or both of the victims' deaths were self-inflicted."

Triezenberg, 57, of Granville, was visiting Engoglia, 54, at the facility. They had lived together in Granville before Engoglia moved into the care facility.

Sycamore Police Chief Don Thomas said officers were called to the hospital Tuesday evening after a report of shots fired in a patient room. They arrived to find Engoglia and Triezenberg dead from gunshot wounds. Thomas said a handgun was found near Engoglia's body.

"They were in a relationship," the chief said of the two victims. "I'm not going to characterize it."

Autopsies are scheduled for Thursday and police continue to investigate.

Kindred Hospital officials said they are cooperating with authorities in the investigation. The shooting was "a very sad and unfortunate situation," hospital officials said in a statement. They said they cannot comment further because of patient confidentiality.
