Couple Found Dead In Apparent Murder-Suicide In Spring Valley Lake ID’d

VICTORVILLE, CALIF. ( – New developments have emerged in the Spring Valley Lake investigation as authorities confirm the incident on Vista Point Drive as a case of murder-suicide involving a local couple.

It began with a report on February 22 when the family of 40-year-old Claudia Carmen Urgiles reached out to Sheriff’s Dispatch reporting her as missing.

Mrs. Urgiles had not been responding to phone calls, which prompted her worried relatives to contact authorities.

In a standard response to such reports, deputies from the Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station initiated a missing person investigation.

Two days later, deputies executed a search warrant at the property located on the 17900 Block of Vista Point Drive, in Spring Valley Lake, where Claudia shared with her husband, 45-year-old Luis Fernando Urgiles.

The couple was found deceased inside their home, both having suffered gunshot wounds.
