Terrible news out of Borrego Springs in San Diego county. Borrego Sun editor Judy Winter Meier was found dead in her apartment Monday alongside her estranged husband. San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies discovered the bodies and believe Meier was the victim of a murder suicide by her husband. A gun was found near his body.
“I can’t think of anybody that didn’t know her,” said the newspaper’s office assistant, Angela Juhl. “She was involved in everything about this town for 30 years.”
Juhl said Monday was a printing deadline day. When Meier didn’t show up or call, the three employees knew something was wrong.
“We knew it was bad,” she said. “The only reason she didn’t call, we all knew, was because she couldn’t.”
Rest in peace.
