PALM BEACH COUNTY – Authorities today identified the man and woman involved in an apparent murder-suicide near Boynton Beach on Saturday.

Sarah Covington Crews, 33, of 3800 N. Seacrest Boulevard, was found dead Saturday afternoon, just a few hours after she was under the protection of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Russell Antonio Dillard, 47, died later Saturday afternoon of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to sheriff’s spokesman Eric Davis.

Crews called the sheriff’s office about 11:20 a.m. Saturday asking for law enforcement protection while she entered a man’s house to retrieve some of her belongings. Deputies waited with Crews will she retrieved her clothes from the home and then left after she left, Davis said.

Then about 2:40 p.m., the sheriff’s office received a call that Crews was dead at a friend’s house, two doors from where Dillard lived, Davis said.

Witnesses saw Dillard run to his home, a block north of Boynton Beach city limits, across from Palm Beach Memorial Cemetery.

The Palm Beach County SWAT Team and dozens of other officials surrounded the house for about three hours but were unable to make contact with Dillard.

When they later entered the house, they discovered that Dillard died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
