SAN DIEGO – The three people found dead in an upscale Rancho Santa Fe home Monday in what was likely a double-murder suicide were identified Friday by the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The victims were identified as 56-year-old Ihnwon Mia Shin, 15-year-old Hannah Arya and 52-year-old Sayeh Amini.
Shin and Arya were murdered. They died of multiple sharp force injuries, the Medical Examiner reported.
Amini committed suicide. She also died of multiple sharp force injuries.
The three were found dead Monday in a home in the 17100 block of Via de la Valle when San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies responded to an initial report of child abuse.
Hannah was the daughter of Michael Arya, a real estate broker who owned the home until he died earlier this year from lung cancer, 10News learned.
Sayeh Amini was Michael’s sister.
Shin was a real estate agent.
For the past few years, Hannah attended boarding school at Verde Valley School in Sedona, Ariz., 10News confirmed through a school administrator. She voluntarily left the school mid-way this year to be with her dying father.
According to the San Diego County Assessor's Office, the home is currently owned by the Michael Arya Revocable Living Trust. It was unclear who Arya named as the benefactor of the home.
