Coronado Murders Shock Navy Community


Lt. David Reis and his sister Karen

Investigators in Coronado are still trying to figure out the motive behind the shooting death of four people in the wee morning hours of New Year's Day. The Associated Press has identified two of the victims as 25-year-old Navy pilot Lt. David Reis, and his sister, 24-year-old Karen Reis.

The U-T San Diego reports a third man killed in the condo, Bob Reeves, was also a Navy pilot training at MCAS Miramar. The name of the fourth person found dead, a 31-year-old Chula Vista man, still hasn't been released.

According to the AP, Lt. Reis was stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar and had recently taken his first flight on a F/A-18 fighter jet. His sister, Karen, was a 2009 graduate of U.C. San Diego. Rebecca Bailey, who was a teammate of Karen Reis's on the U.C.S.D. volleyball team, said of the shooting:

The media has hinted the slayings were a murder-suicide, as police have said they are not searching for a suspect in the crime.
