Mesquite Police Report Apparent Murder-Suicide

MESQUITE (AP) – The bodies of a man and a woman have been found at a Dallas-area home and police are investigating the shooting deaths as an apparent murder-suicide.

Mesquite police on Wednesday announced the investigation into the deaths of 35-year-old Clinton Scott and a woman whose name wasn’t immediately released.

Police say the woman apparently was slain several days before Scott fatally shot himself.

Her body was discovered Tuesday night in the kitchen as police responded to a request to check on people at the home. Police say Scott’s body was in the master bedroom.

Investigators are trying to determine any relationship between the pair. Authorities say Scott had been living at the residence for several months.

Mesquite police didn’t immediately say who asked officers to check the home.
