EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP –  The two men found shot inside a London Court home Saturday afternoon were victims of a murder-suicide, according to Acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain, who also identified the victims as Andrew Breznitsky, 58, and Del McKenzie, 58, both of whom resided at the 254 London Court address.

 The investigation by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit, the Egg Harbor Township Police Department, and the New Jersey State Medical Examiner’s Office concluded that McKenzie killed Breznitsky, shooting him twice in the head, before turning the gun on himself and firing two shots into his own chest.

  On Saturday, May 24, at 1:28 p.m., Egg Harbor Township Police responded to the London Court home, after receiving a 911 call from a neighbor reporting that mail had been accumulating outside the residence, and that the two men residing at the address had not been seen since Thursday.

 Police found the two men inside the home, dead of gunshots. Breznitsky had gunshot wounds to the head. McKenzie had gunshot wounds to the chest. A small caliber semi-automatic handgun was recovered at the scene, and next-of-kin were notified.

Autopsies were performed on Sunday, May 25 by the New Jersey State Medical Examiner’s Office. The causes of death of both men were fatal gunshot wounds, and the manner of death was murder-suicide.

 Anyone with information relevant to this case is asked to contact the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit at (609) 909-7666.
