By Guy Leonard, St. Mary's County Times

HOLLYWOOD, Md. (April 16, 2015)—Officials with the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office say the deaths of two women in Chaptico last month were the result of one woman shooting the other before turning the gun on herself. Sheriff Timothy K. Cameron confirmed Monday that the it was Janet Little, 45, who fatally shot Victoria Reeves, 58, in a home on Rivendell Way.

Cameron declined to speak in depth about the motive behind the killings but said money was a motivator.

“It appears to be related to financial issues,” Cameron told The County Times.

He said the investigation into the homicide/suicide is continuing.

Both women, who lived at the same address, were found dead suffering from single gun shot wounds to the head, according to Bruce Goldfarb, public information officer for the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Police sources with knowledge of the investigation said a note was found at the home March 8 where the two women were found telling whoever found it to call the police and not enter the home.
