Lost Lovers Last Embrace Murder Suicide

California cops say a murder suicide explains the last embrace of lost lovers found dead in Joshua Tree national park.

Relatives had been hoping against hope to find 22-year-old Joseph Orbeso and his girlfriend, 20-year-old Rachel Nguyen, alive, but the mysteriously missing couple's bodies have finally been located.

Orbeso and Nguyen vanished in July of 2017 after the two failed to return to their AirBnB rental following a hike into Joshua Tree's wilderness, where daytime temperatures often exceed 100-degrees Fahrenheit and water is in scarce supply.

Despite a massive rescue effort that spanned several weeks, neither was ever seen nor heard from again. 

Then, on October 15th, a search party -- which included Orbeso's father -- came across the pair's remains in a remote canyon area of the park.

Their corpses were allegedly "locked in an embrace."

The team also told reporters at the time that it appeared the young couple died together from either heat exhaustion or prolonged exposure to the elements.

However, autopsies performed this week revealed one of the victims had been shot to death and the other committed suicide.

Investigators have further disclosed that unspecified "evidence" was additionally recovered "at the scene," leading them to fairly conclude that Joseph Orbeso killed Rachel Nguyen before taking his own life.

The case is still under investigation, and a motive for the murder suicide is not known yet.
