MONTGOMERY, Texas – The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the murder-suicide of an elderly couple.

Family members called the Sheriff’s Office Tuesday morning asking them to check on Neil and Helen Rothenburg. The husband and wife, both in their 80's, had not been heard from since this weekend and were not answering the phone.

When deputies arrived at the home on Villas Ways Drive, on the shores of Lake Conroe, they found the Rothenburg’s bodies. They both had gunshot wounds to the head.

The Sheriff’s Office also found a suicide note. They say the couple had been battling health problems.
