Suspicious death of an elderly couple in Visalia

FRESNO, Calif.

On Sunday, investigators found 80-year-old Billie Lou Bush and Thomas Bush dead in the backyard of their house at Sunnyside Court near Akers Road.

Officers went to check on the couple after family members found a suicide note inside the home.

When investigators arrived, they found the victims lying next to each other in the backyard shed.

Police are currently classifying this as a double suicide. But they are still trying to determine if it should be ruled a case of murder-suicide.
