The father of NASCAR superstar Robby Gordon strangled his wife, Sharon, and then shot himself in a murder suicide at their Orange County, CA home … officials say.
The bodies of 68-year-old “Baja Bob” Gordon and 57-year-old Sharon Gordon were discovered Wednesday afternoon.
The Orange County Coroner’s Office describes the death of Robert Gordon as being consistent with a self-inflicted gunshot wound and the death of Sharon Gordon was a result of strangulation.
Cops say a rifle was recovered inside the house.
We’re told cops are conducting ballistics tests on the weapon to see if it was in fact the gun used in the murder suicide.
