A Redwood City man who shot his wife to death early Monday morning before shooting himself in the head has died from his injuries, according to the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office.
An autopsy on 69-year-old John Padgett will be conducted today, according to the office.
His wife, Sandra Schlick Padgett, 72, was pronounced dead by the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office Monday. Her husband, however, survived an attempt to kill himself and was taken to Stanford Medical Center for treatment.
Sandra Padgett was the longtime director of college counseling at The Harker School in San Jose.
