SYCAMORE — Police confirmed Friday that Tuesday's shooting at Kindred Hospital that left two dead was a murder/suicide in which both people agreed to the outcome.
About 5:50 p.m. Tuesday, Sycamore police found Mario Engoglia, 54, and Susan Triezenberg, 57, dead from gunshot wounds at the hospital, located at 225 Edward St. The two were from Granville, and Engoglia was a patient at the hospital.
A witness discovered the scene inside Engoglia's room on the main floor where Triezenberg was visiting, police said. There were no witnesses to the shootings.
Sycamore police said autopsies of both Engoglia and Triezenberg and evidence gathered at the scene determined Engoglia shot and killed Triezenberg before shooting himself with the same weapon.
Police found a note in the room they believe was prepared by both Engoglia and Triezenberg. That and interviews conducted led police to determine the two planned for the intended outcome, said Sycamore police Lt. Darrell Johnson.
"We're confident in the investigation that they were both willing participants," Johnson said.
No one else was involved and no charges are expected in the case. Johnson said police are working with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to trace the handgun that was found at the scene.
Kindred Hospital Sycamore is a 69-bed long-term acute care hospital. A statement from the hospital released Tuesday expressed condolences but said hospital officials could not comment further due to patient confidentiality.
