POLICE: Man, Woman Dead In Possible Delray Murder-Suicide


Infant At Scene Left Unharmed

DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: Delray Beach Police Department Media Advisory) — Around 8:20 a.m. Tuesday, the Delray Beach Police Department got a call from a man who said he had shot his girlfriend and planned to take his own life. As officers responded to apartment 307 in the Village at Delray apartments, they learned a frightening detail: the couple’s two young sons might be in the apartment, as well.

Officers tried repeatedly to make contact with the residents of the apartment, to no avail. Then shortly after 10 a.m., with the help of the Boca Raton Police Department, DBPD SWAT operators entered the house to find the man, 30-year-old Yves Romain, and a woman, 23-year-old Lovemy Mathurin, dead inside.  Officers found their 10-month-old son safe, sitting in a car seat in another room. Their 3-year-old son was not in the apartment. The Department of Children and Families later placed both children in the care of relatives.

DBPD detectives are investigating the deaths as a possible murder-suicide. Detectives believe Romain shot Mathurin and then turned the gun on himself. The couple was new to the neighborhood. Officers hadn’t been called to the home before and had had only minimal contact with Romaine – once as a robbery victim and once as a car crash victim.   

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Det. Joe Hart at (561) 243-7874.
