Sherry Ann Thomas, a 49-year-old white woman, was found dead Saturday, July 18, in the 5200 block of Colodny Drive in Agoura Hills, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

At 11:27 a.m., deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department responded to a home to perform a welfare check, according to a news release.

The man was identified as John Mann. His death was ruled a suicide, according to records from the coroner’s office. A gun was recovered at the scene.
