A former professional hockey player and a woman were found dead in the athlete's home in California over the weekend.


Officials revealed that professional hockey player, Darren Partch, and mother of two, Wendi Miller were found dead over the weekend in the athlete's home in California. Wendi, 48, and Darren, 38, were discovered at Partch's condominium in Newport Beach.

The Newport Beach Police Department received a call around 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, to the home. When they arrived they discovered the two dead.


In a news release on Monday, authorities revealed that the situation is being investigated as a homicide. No further information has been released about the investigation.

Partch spent years playing professional hockey for the Waterloo Black Hawks and San Diego Gulls. Miller was the CEO of Wings for Justice, a nonprofit organization that advocates on behalf of children in the criminal justice system.

Luke Carpenter, identified as Miller's son by media outlets, wrote on Facebook that his mother was fatally shot. He said,

"It was told to us that she did not suffer. The police are still investigating all the details. I have no doubt in my mind that she was loved on earth and I’m happy that she gets to be loved even better in heaven. I love you mom."
