ANSON, Texas (AP) — Police in West Texas say a woman appears to have killed a relative and two dogs before taking her own life.

Anson police are investigating Wednesday's incident as a murder-suicide. KTXS-TV reports (http://bit.ly/SprCPx) that police were called Wednesday to a home in the 2,300-person city by neighbors who noticed a foul odor.

Police Chief David Moore said an officer was able to see a dead person sitting in a chair inside the home.

Authorities say they found the suspected killer dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The victims were not immediately identified.

Anson is 170 miles west of Fort Worth.
