Law enforcement said that when they arrived on the scene, both Raynor and Fisher were already dead. Raynor appeared to have a self-inflicted gun shot wound. Both he and Fisher also had stab wounds. Both were outside the home when officials arrived. Autopsies are being performed to determine the exact cause of death for both.
Anne Arundel County Police Department officials said they responded after receiving a call about a domestic assault around 8 a.m. The 911 caller was a woman who said that Fisher asked her to call the police after Fisher’s estranged husband arrived at her house and threatened her.
Despite the horrific scene at the home when police arrived, it does not appear that there was a history of incidents at the house. Police said they had never been called to that address before, NBC Washington reported. According to court records from a pending divorce, Fisher lived on Arundel, where she and Raynor’s bodies were found. Raynor lived in Annapolis on Stone Point Drive.
