A Bonney Lake mother and daughter killed over the weekend in a homicide-suicide were identified Monday as Julieanne Cieslikowski, 16, and Sarahlynne Cieslikowski, 36.
Pierce County medical examiners did not release a cause of death because the autopsies were not complete, but investigators said Sarahlynne Cieslikowski shot her daughter and then herself.
The bodies were discovered Friday night inside their home in the 20400 block of Rhododendron Drive East when Cieslikowski’s boyfriend came home from work. They were in the girl’s bedroom.
A note written by Sarahlynne Cieslikowski led detectives to believe the deaths were a homicide-suicide, sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said. The contents of the note were not released.
