A couple living in a Garden Grove retirement community died Wednesday in what police believe was a mutual suicide pact. "It appears that it was a planned thing," said Capt. Dave Abrecht, a spokesman for the Garden Grove Police Department. "All I can tell you is that they both had serious health problems."
