Detectives Investigate Double Murder-Suicide in Fairfax

Fair Oaks Police District – Detectives from our Major Crimes Bureau are investigating a double murder-suicide after two women and a man were found deceased in an apartment in Fairfax. Officers were called yesterday around 11 a.m. to the 4200 block of Mazarin Place after a family member requested a welfare check.

When officers arrived, they gained access to the apartment courtesy of another roommate that was inside and unaware of any foul play. Officers attempted to enter a back bedroom, but the door was blocked. Officers were able to see inside the locked room through an outside window from the balcony and discovered Angelica McIntosh, 26, Anne Lollar, 31, and an adult man suffering from gunshot wounds to the upper body. While confirmation on the man’s identity is still pending, preliminarily, detectives believe the man to be Jose Gale Aliaga, 26. All three were pronounced deceased at the scene. 

Detectives found evidence to indicate McIntosh, Lollar and the man made a suicide pact. Detectives believe the man shot McIntosh and Lollar prior to shooting himself. The two deceased women and the man lived in the apartment, and the roommate is cooperating with police. The roommate is not considered a person of interest. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to confirm the identity of the man.
