The San Jose woman who was found dead in her home Friday morning has been identified as 54-year-old Patricia Nosenzo. A day after Nosenzo was found by police, officers found her husband, 50-year-old Troy Edward Nosenzo, dead of an apparent sleeping pill overdose in his parked car on the side of State Highway 129 west of U.S. Highway 101 in San Benito County.
According to San Jose police, Troy Nosenzo appeared to have committed suicide. Nosenzo had been the prime suspect in the death of his wife, Patricia. On Friday morning, police had received a 911 hang up call from the Nosenzo’s Evangeline Drive home just before 5:40 a.m. But because the call was a hang up and officers were looking into other confirmed reports of crime, police didn’t get around to checking into the call until about 6:20 a.m., when they were again delayed, this time by two aggressive dogs in the unlocked house.
After getting help from a San Jose Animal Control Services officer, police were finally able to enter the home, where they found Patricia Nosenzo on the floor. She was later pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Police said they are still investigating the homicide, which is the city’s 41st of 2012.
