An elderly couple who spent much of their lives in Bristol died in a murder-suicide in Texas, according to law enforcement there.
Clyde Fillmore, 85, and Jane Fillmore, 87, died Feb. 25 at their home in Mission, Texas.
A spokesman for the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Department said deputies went to the couple’s home on the afternoon of Feb. 25 after they were contacted by a member of the Fillmores’ family who was concerned about their welfare.
The couple were found dead in the house.
“It was a murder-suicide, and the case has been closed,” a spokesman for the department said.
The department spokesman would not release any additional information on the deaths or the investigation.
The Fillmores operated Fillmore Landscaping in Bristol for more than 40 years.
