Baxter County deputies investigating probable murder-suicide

MOUNTAIN HOME - (KAIT)  Baxter County Sheriff's deputies are investigating an apparent murder-suicide.

Monday afternoon the bodies of 46-year-old Nancy Vanette Frank and her mother, 79-year-old Louise V. Gipson, were found in Gipson's Mountain View home.

Investigators say they found two letters written by Frank.

One of the letters indicated Gipson was in poor health and did not want to become a burden to her family.

Investigators believe Frank shot Gipson, then turned the gun on herself.

The bodies are being sent to the medical examiner's office in Little Rock for autopsy.
