8-12-2007 Arizona:

A Mesa couple suspected of molesting a 10-year-old girl has been found dead, the apparent victims of a murder-suicide.

Paul and Myrtis Gauthreaux were found Thursday morning on U.S. 60 in Gila County near Globe in their parked car.

The Gila County Sheriff's Office is investigating.

The couple had been the subject of an FBI investigation but had not been positively linked to Internet pictures of a girl being molested, said FBI spokeswoman Deborah McCarley.

Law enforcement found the couple dead of apparent gunshot wounds.

They were found holding hands and with a suicide note explaining their motive, a Gila County Sheriff's Office spokesman said. The spokesman declined to elaborate on the note's contents.

The couple was being investigated under the "innocent images" program operated by the FBI. The program seeks to investigate cases of child pornography on the Internet. ..more.. by
