WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. — A real estate agent found two people dead and a third person injured Sunday inside a home near Bellingham. Sheriffs say it appears to be a case of domestic violence.

According to Whatcom County Sheriff Bill Elfo, a man and a 15 month old baby were found dead. A woman who lived with them was still alive. She admitted to killing the two, then turning the gun on herself.

Deputies are trying to determine whether the woman was the biological mother of the child. She was transported to St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Bellingham. Hospital officials would not release details on her condition Sunday night.

Deputies say the real estate agent was preparing to show the house in the 5000 block of Noon Road Sunday afternoon, when he made the gruesome discovery. He denied Q13 Fox’s request for an interview.

Sheriff Elfo said investigators believe the shooting may have happened a couple of days ago. They do not know if the woman or family had a history of domestic violence.

The investigation is ongoing.

    This just makes my soul cry. My daughter Christiana is somewhere in Washington or Oregon I havnt seen her in a few years and havnt talked to her in over 1 yr (only for a couple min) only because I started spreading the word that I had hounds hunting them out is why the guy she is with allowed her to call. He is extremely abusive in every way! I am Praying that this isnt her!

    yet another family who had to learn the hard way how unsafe that gun in your home makes you. Sadly they are just another statistic.

    Least she could have done was finish the job, but she’s a coward. Like most that do this sort of thing.

    Note to cowards like this: Shoot yourself first.
