Nassau NY homicide detectives last night were investigating what police sources said was the shooting deaths of a New York City internal affairs lieutenant and his longtime female companion at their Roslyn Heights home. The city department identified the man as Lt. Stephen Bouillon, 49, a 23-year veteran who had been a lieutenant for eight years. Nassau police identified the woman as Joan McHugh, 47, described as his companion for 22 years... both victims had received gunshot wounds... The death of the city police lieutenant would be the second for such an officer within a week. Thursday Lt. Theresa Flannery, 33, was found in her Bellmore apartment with gunshot wounds to the head. It has not been determined whether that death was a homicide or a suicide, according to police. Flannery, a 12-year veteran, worked in the Traffic Control Division in Manhattan.
