By From page A4 | August 23, 2014

MILL VALLEY — Sheriff’s officials say the shooting deaths of two men found in adjacent backyards in the San Francisco Bay Area appear to be a murder-suicide.

Marin County Sheriff’s Lt. Doug Pittman tells the Marin Independent Journal all the evidence collected so far points to a murder-suicide, though he cautions that the investigation is far from over.

Detectives were looking into the shooting death of the first man — identified as 61-year-old Theodore Charles Rodden — in unincorporated Mill Valley late Wednesday. They discovered the body of a second man who was also shot the following morning.

Investigators also found a rifle alongside the second man, who was identified as 41-year-old Andreas Kreiden. The men’s identities were released on Friday.

Sheriff’s officials were looking into whether they were involved in a dispute.
