HONEY GROVE, TX----- Fannin County authorities are investigating a murder-suicide in Honey Grove, Texas. Officers said they found 51-year-old Michael Troutt and his wife 47-year-old Traci Troutt dead inside their home around 7 a.m. this morning.

The couple lived in the 1000 block of 14th Street. Investigators said it appears that Mrs. Troutt shot her husband this morning then called 911 to report her actions before turning the gun on herself. Police said they found the couple laying on their bed.

"I just think it's a sad thing that happened and I can't believe that it happened," neighbor Betty Morgan said.

The couple both worked at the Veterans Affairs Center in Bonham. Mr. Troutt is a former member of the Honey Grove Police Department.

There's no word yet on a motive. The Honey Grove Police Department, the Fannin County Sheriff's Office and the Texas Rangers are investigating.
