HOUSTON – Homicide investigators say a northwest Houston home under foreclosure apparently led the struggling residents to take their own lives.

Police arrived at approximately 11 p.m. Sunday to the home on Arncliffe Drive near Antoine Drive and found a married couple shot to death.

The couple left notes that indicated the shootings were suicides and a result of financial difficulties including the foreclosure of their home.

Investigators say the couple were found on their bed with the suicide notes alongside of them.

Because investigators say their corpses were decaying for more than one month, the stench of their bodies could be smelled across the street. The smell apparently alarmed a neighbor enough to contact police.

One gun was found inside the home.
