Deputies are continuing their investigation into a possible false imprisonment case that ended in what appears to be a murder/suicide – after the bodies of a Dunedin couple were found in the Chassahowitzka Forest in Hernando County. The murder/suicide is being investigated by the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded at about 12:15 a.m. on Sunday, May 19, 2013.

Deputies responded to a private residence located at 1817 Dinnerbell Lane in Dunedin.

Deputies responded to conduct a welfare check at the Dunedin home of 66-year-old Michael Jones and 66 year-old Glenna Jones -this after the couple’s son, Kenneth Jones, received a disturbing call from them.

Kenneth Jones immediately contacted the Sheriff’s Office and headed to the home of his parents where he met up with deputies.  Deputies made entry into the home with the son and found no one inside. The parent’s vehicle, a tan PT cruiser, was also missing from the residence.

Further investigation led deputies to determine that the couple may be in the area of the Chassahowitzka Forest in Hernando County. Deputies contacted the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office, who subsequently located their vehicle in a wooded area of the forest. The bodies were located outside of the vehicle. (Please contact the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office for information regarding the murder/suicide.)

Deputies say that due to evidence found inside the couple’s home,  Glenna Jones, may have been bound prior leaving the residence, hence the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office Investigation into a possible false imprisonment.

The investigation continues.
