ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State Police say a man and a woman found dead inside a vehicle west of Albuquerque both were shot in the head.

Police say they’re still investigating the suspicious deaths and trying to determine a motive.

They say the dead man in the driver’s seat of the pickup truck had a handgun between his legs.

The woman’s body was in the front passenger’s seat.

Police say the names of the man and woman are being withheld until their identities are confirmed and relatives have been notified.

A State Police officer saw the truck with a camper shell parked Thursday morning on a shoulder of Interstate 40 and found the two occupants dead.

Authorities say the man and woman appeared to have suffered a gunshot wound to the head.
