Woman killed in apparent Raynham murder-suicide being remembered



A woman who was killed in an apparent murder-suicide in Raynham on Tuesday is being remembered by those who knew her.

According to Gregg Miliote of the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office, at approximately 2:00 a.m., Raynham Police received 911 calls from both the female shooting victim and another tenant of the home to report the shooting at 80 Ruth Ellen Road.

When police and paramedics arrived on scene minutes later, they discovered both the victim and the apparent shooter deceased in the victim’s bedroom.

The victim was identified as 30-year-old Tatiana Tavares of Raynham and the apparent shooter, who then took his own life, was identified as 43-year-old Scott Swale of Easton.

The preliminary investigation reveals that Swale appears to have forced entry into the home by shattering a sliding glass door. He then walked upstairs to Tavares’s bedroom and shot her in the- chest while she was lying on the bed. Swale then appears to have shot himself in the head.

Condolences and remembrances of Tavares began to pour in on Tuesday. Friends were remembering her kind, beautiful, and loving heart and someone who was always true to who she was. Those who knew her expressed how much they loved her and would miss her. According to friends, her children are also now left without their mother.

Tavares and Swale had been engaged in a hostile year-long on again, off again relationship, according to the DA’s Office.

The investigation is still ongoing.
