OCALA, Fla. (AP) - Police are investigating the death of a north Florida couple in what investigators say was a murder-suicide.

Ocala police say they found the body of 47-year-old Patrick Bline slumped over in a vehicle on Thursday morning after neighbors had heard a gunshot the night before. Police said he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police later found the body of 49-year-old Dawn Yvette Makely in a home she and Bline co-owned and had lived in together for more than a decade.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports (https://bit.ly/1MNTukV ) that neighbors said the couple was quiet and kept to themselves. They said Bline often mowed his lawn at nights.
