Murder-suicide suspected in teens' deaths

BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) - Authorities say parental pressure over a relationship may have contributed to a Bossier City teen couple's murder-suicide.

Ed Baswell, Bossier Parish sheriff's office spokesman, tells The Times an uncle found the bodies of the teens in a pickup about 5 p.m. Tuesday just north of Bossier City.

Baswell said the couple had been missing for several days.

He says a deputy found the boy in the driver's seat and the girl in the passenger seat and a gun was recovered from the truck.

Baswell says there was some parental resistance to the two being together.

Deputies did not release the names of the victims.
