CCSO: Probable Murder-Suicide In North Naples

Two elderly siblings were found shot to death inside their North Naples residence Tuesday and the Collier County Sheriff’s Office is calling their deaths a probable murder-suicide.

Detectives say August Steen Jr., 85, likely shot his 92-year-old sister Edna Jarboe before turning the gun on himself.

A home healthcare worker discovered the bodies around 9 a.m. inside the residence the siblings shared at 3615 El Segundo Court in the Village Walk community.

An official cause of death will be determined after the autopsies are completed by the District Twenty Medical Examiner’s Office.

An investigation continues.
