Agents suspect murder-suicide in Fort Hood deaths

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Army investigators suspect murder-suicide in the deaths of the husband and two children whose bodies were found in a home at Fort Hood.

In a statement Wednesday, the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command says the 43-year-old man is married to a female soldier who recently returned from overseas deployment. He and their two daughters, ages 9 and 4, were found dead in their Fort Hood home Tuesday morning.

The statement says “early indications” point toward murder-suicide, though a final determination hasn’t been made. Autopsies are being performed by the Office of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner.

The statement says identities and other information are being withheld to protect the integrity of the investigation, but agents see no threat to the public.
