SPARKS, Nev. — Police identified the couple found dead inside an apartment on Tuesday as Mark and Debbie Constantino, local paranormal investigators featured in the Travel Channel hit series Ghost Adventures. In what police believe is a related incident, a third person was found dead in a home in northwest Reno.
The Constantinos were found inside their daughter’s apartment near Sparks High School.
SWAT teams from both Reno and Sparks police surrounded the Courtside Gardens Apartments, evacuated the complex and put it on lockdown.
According to KRNV-TV, police said the couple had a long history of domestic violence, and Mark Constantino had allegedly kidnapped Debbie Constantino a few months ago. Records indicate he was arrested in August and booked on suspicion of domestic battery by strangulation, first-degree kidnapping and first-degree domestic battery.
The Constantinos were involved in several television programs about ghost hunting, including Ghost Adventures, police said.
