LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police have identified a Las Vegas couple who
died in an apparent suicide pact outside the same Florida church
where they married 40 years ago.
A pastor found 60-year-old Bruce Wright and his 57-year-old
wife, Patricia Wright, Sunday morning beneath a tree behind
Friendship United Methodist Church in Florida's Charlotte County. A
shotgun and rifle were nearby.
Police say the husband was dead on the scene and the wife died
of her injuries at a hospital Wednesday.
The couple's nephew, Daniel Johnson, tells the Las Vegas

contact with family members. He says Patricia Wright was most
recently employed at a hospital and Bruce Wright was working in
Johnson says the family doesn't understand why the couple killed
