UPDATE: Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli this afternoon confirmed the identities of an engaged couple found dead in a murder-suicide at a Moonachie trailer home overnight.
Authorities were called at 3:07 a.m. by another man who lived at 3 West 1st Street in the Vanguard Trailer Park off Moonachie Avenue who friends identified as Chris Jaconski.
There they found the bodies of April Marie Wallace Ellialtioglu and Jeffrey Scarpanito Jr. on the living room floor, both with gunshot wounds in the head, Molinelli said.
Scarpanito, 34, killed Wallace Ellialtioglu before turning the gun on himself, he said.

Scarpanito was a Nevada native whose mother is a schoolteacher in Paterson.
Autopsies were being conducted today by the Bergen County Medical Examiner.
Molinelli’s Major Crimes Unit was investigating. The Bergen County Sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Identification collected evidence.
