Deputies investigating murder suicide in Unincorporated Clearwater

Shortly after 2 p.m. on Friday, January 13, 2023, deputies responded to a home at 1825 Stancel Drive in Unincorporated Clearwater after receiving several 911 calls.

Once deputies arrived on-scene, they located 41 year-old Erica Viney and 71 year-old Langley Dunsmuir deceased.

According to detectives, Viney moved into the residence with Dunsmuir and his wife on January 2, 2023. Detectives say a verbal altercation occurred regarding the terms of the living arrangements and Dunsmuir was upset.

Detectives believe Dunsmuir murdered Viney and then took his own life with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

An autopsy will be conducted, and the Medical Examiner’s Office will work to determine the cause and manner of death.

Next of kin has been notified.
