SHARE Girl spends a day alone with her parents’ bodies

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A 3-year-old girl spent at least a day alone in her home with the bodies of her slain parents, possible victims of a murder-suicide.

Authorities were alerted after a worried employer called the house looking for the girl's father, Jose I. Villagomez Ramirez, 29, who didn't show up for work at a plant nursery. The girl answered the phone and told the employer that her mother and father were dead.

Villagomez Ramirez apparently fatally shot his wife of nearly five years, Maria Laura Vazquez, 25, and then turned the gun on himself, the sheriff's office said.
