    "A North Naples husband and wife found dead inside their home Wednesday afternoon both suffered gunshot wounds to the face, according to a Collier County Sheriff’s Office incident report".

    "Collier deputies arrived at the home of Michael and Barbara Bitterman around 4:45 p.m. after being dispatched to an alarm at their home in the 12000 block of Collier’s Reserve Drive".

    ETA - Murder suicide?

    Investigators said the deaths do not appear suspicious. They are not searching for any other suspects, an agency spokeswoman said. It’s unclear from reports who investigators believe was the shooter.

    I'd be more inclined to buy the murder/ suicide theory if it wasn't for the fact that a shotgun was found at the foot of the bed. I guess it's possible but I am thinking it would be difficult to shoot yourself in the face with a shotgun.

    Maybe he shot her with a shotgun and then himself with a handgun?

    They were both found laying in bed with what appeared to be gunshots to the face and the shotgun was laying at the foot of the bed. Weird LE doesn't find this suspicious - I do. According to the acticle in 2012 the wife misplaced a $120k diamond ring. I think it's safe to say they had valuables in their home.

    Went from getting ready to go on a cruise to murder/suicide?
    It all sounds rather odd. JMO

    Who shoots themselves in the face? Does anyone recall suicide by shooting ones face? I dunno, this sounds very off.

    Unfortunately, yes, they do. However, sometimes they blow their faces off and then survive.

    This does not smell right to me. If one shot the other, how did the shotgun get put at the foot of the bed? One of them shot themself and then put it there? Also, wouldn't it be hard to shoot yourself in the face with a shotgun?

    Michael Bitterman, 74, was found on his back in a bedroom. He was wearing a dark blue bathrobe and had what appeared to be a gunshot wound to his face.

    His wife, Barbara N. Bitterman, 61, was lying in bed, wearing only underwear. She also had what appeared to be a gunshot wound to her face.

    Deputies found a shotgun lying at the foot of the bed. On the other side of the home, in the master bedroom, the bed was not made and there were a couple of suitcases packed with clothes. "They were just getting ready to go on a cruise this week.”
