Beach Resort Tragedy

A visit to a local beach resort ended in tragedy for two New Port Richey natives.

As reported by ABC Action News, Clearwater Homicide detectives are investigating a possible murder suicide at the popular Clearwater Beach hotel known as Shephards Beach Resort, located at 619 S. Gulfview Boulevard.

Officers responded to the resort at about 1:29 pm Tuesday afternoon, where they discovered 2 bodies in a second floor hotel room. The bodies were later identified as that of Jeffrey Little, 55, and Melissa Little, 50, both of New Port Richey.

The police believe that the husband Mr. Little, first shot and killed his wife then later turned the gun on himself. The couple had checked into the hotel on Monday.

At this time Shephards Resort has not yet commented.
