A Village of Los Ranchos, New Mexico judge was found dead in her home on Friday in what investigators believe was a murder-suicide.

Deputies with the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office conducted a welfare check at a home on Ranchitos Road in Albuquerque after a friend of Eric Pinkerton's reported a troubling message.

When deputies arrived, the department said on Twitter, they located and confirmed two adults were dead inside the home, one of whom was 63-year-old Pinkerton.
