Mother & son found dead at Stuart Yacht & Country Club, third body discovered at motel

STUART, FL (WFLX) - Two people were found shot several times in someone else's home Monday. The Martin County Sheriff's Office says the suspect killed himself.  Now, they're trying to figure out this murder mystery.

The sheriff's office says an elderly mother and her son were found dead in a house at the Stuart Yacht and Country Club.

The victims, Gloria Bono and her son Michael Bono, lived on Aster Lane in Stuart. According to police, her daughter called authorities Sunday night when she couldn't reach them. "The City of Stuart began searching for them ,and found Mrs. Bono's car at the Best Western in the city of Stuart," said Sheriff William Snyder.

Snyder says the person who drove Bono's car to this hotel was Robert Gulick. "Mr. Gulick and Mr. Bono were friends, were associates of some kind, and they were apparently together last [Sunday] night."

Gulick's body was found in a hotel room. The sheriff says he committed suicide.

Detectives then figured out Gulick had gone to the Stuart Yacht and Country Club Sunday night. A guard spotted him around 7 p.m. "Mr. Gulick was a caretaker for this property for an out of state homeowner, so he would have been allowed to come and go as was necessary."

The house belongs to a woman in New York. It has been empty since May. Inside the house, the sheriff says, they found the bodies of Gloria and Michael Bono. "They appeared to have died of multiple gunshots."

The sheriff says they don't why the Bonos were killed, but, he believes, Gulick pulled the trigger.? Detectives hope to have more answers Tuesday.
