Deaths of man, woman in Philadelphia-area home ruled murder-suicide; had been behind on rent


EAGLEVILLE, Pennsylvania — Authorities say the deaths of a suburban Philadelphia man and woman have been ruled a murder-suicide.

The Montgomery County district attorney's office said 54-year-old John Gonzalez and 58-year-old Margaret Durham were found dead Monday in their Eagleville home.

Authorities said autopsies concluded that Gonzalez shot and killed Durham before turning the gun on himself.

Prosecutors said a preliminary investigation revealed that the couple were behind on their rent. A note with contact information for relatives was found at the scene.
