The Clark County coroner’s office has identified a couple found dead Tuesday in northeast Las Vegas after an apparent murder-suicide.
They were Giuseppe Gaias, 55, and Lisa Thompson, 56, both of Las Vegas. Thompson died of multiple gunshot wounds, and her death was ruled a homicide. Gaias’ death was ruled a suicide.
Police initially received a call at around 4 p.m. from a man in another state to report an email warning of the sender’s death, Metro homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said at the time. Officers responded to the home, a condo at 2050 Los Feliz St., and found Gaias and Thompson dead.
Spencer said Gaias delegated items, including the couple’s cats, to their family in a note written before his death.
“It’s basically a will,” he said. “There’s items that are described. Who he’s going to have take possession of animals, who’s going to take possession of different items. That was spelled out in a written note. It was also spelled out in an email that was sent to family members.”
