LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock authorities first believed it was a double-murder suicide, and now an autopsy report shows that as well.

Dr. Christopher Anderson, 65, his wife, Elaine, and his mother-in-law were found January 19, in their adjacent homes in north Lubbock County.

According to the reports, the prominent Lubbock orthodontist shot his wife and mother-in-law with a rifle, and then killed himself. All three reportedly suffered from heart disease, with the mother-in-law also suffering from dementia.

A suicide note reportedly found at the scene, also cited financially difficulties.
