Texas Mayor & Daughter Found Dead

COPPELL, Texas (AP) - Police in an upscale Dallas suburb say they have found four notes at the home where the town's mayor and her teenage daughter were shot to death in an apparent murder-suicide.

Coppell Deputy Police Chief Steve Thomas said Wednesday that an envelope taped to the front door contained a typed note and a key to the house. The note warned police they were going to find something unpleasant inside.

Three other notes left instructions on how to manage affairs, such as taking care of the family dogs.

Thomas says there were no signs of struggle.

The medical examiner has ruled that 55-year-old Coppell Mayor Jayne Peters died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The death of her 19-year-old daughter, Corinne, was ruled a homicide.
