MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Authorities believe a New Hampshire man killed his roommate and concealed her body in a crawl space behind a closet before he shot himself to death at a Massachusetts motel.

Fifty-seven-year-old Sue Hutchinson of Manchester had been missing since Sept. 20, and Stephen Andrade hadn’t been seen since Sept. 21.

Police said the 36-year-old Andrade killed himself at a Motel 6 in Tewksbury on Oct. 6.

Police responded to the apartment on Sunday night after members of Hutchinson’s family said they detected a strange odor. Police found a crawl space hidden behind a false wall inside a closet. After removing the panel, they found a body and believe it to be Hutchinson’s.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
