The bodies of 68-year-old “Baja Bob” Gordon and 57-year-old Sharon Gordon were discovered Wednesday afternoon. 

The Orange County Coroner’s Office describes the death of Robert Gordon as being consistent with a self-inflicted gunshot wound and the death of Sharon Gordon was a result of strangulation.
