A husband suspected of shooting his wife to death earlier this month in San Francisco was found dead Wednesday.

Robert Riley, 43, appears to have shot himself to death at a home in the 10000 block of Janet Road in the unincorporated San Joaquin County community of French Camp.

On June 7 officers went to the 4500 block of Mission Street in San Francisco after someone told them of a shooting that occurred at around 11:30 a.m., according to police.

Riley allegedly shot his wife, 34-year-old South San Francisco woman Vanessa Palma, and then left the area before officers arrived.

Palma was taken to a hospital where she died.

Wednesday, deputies with the San Joaquin Sheriff’s Office received information that a suspect wanted for killing his wife in San Francisco might be living in French Camp.

Police said Riley was the only suspect in the slaying of his wife.
