JUNE 29, 2004 - Posted at 7:28 a.m. CDT

 

HEBER SPRINGS, AR - Deputies are investigating the deaths of a man and woman whose bodies were found in a rental car in western Cleburne County.  Officials say the deaths appear to be either a double suicide or a murder-suicide.

The car was parked under a tree in Heber Springs and was rigged with a pipe to send exhaust fumes inside the vehicle.

Deputy Prosecutor Tommy Smith said the man had an Australian driver's license and the woman was believed to be British.  Their bodies were sent to the state Crime Lab at Little Rock for autopsies.

The couple had been staying at a local motel.

Names have not been released.
