A double-moded death in Pico (*UPDATED)

*Here’s what Coroner’s Lt. Fred Corral said regarding the Ernesto Frayre case.

*This is a transcription of my notes from a phone conversation with Corral on Monday afternoon:

The victim suffered a “gunshot wound to the head.” The coroner’s investigator wrote his report and assigned a double mode to the case. “Suicide vs. homicide,” Corral said.

What this means Corral said is that the homicide detectives think one thing may have happened while the coroner’s investigator think it was something else.

Homicide dets are leading toward homicide, coroner’s investigator is leaning toward suicide.

Corral would not say if a gun was recovered at the scene. He also wouldn’t say if there was a note of some sort.
