Nev. couple return to Fla. church for suicide pact

| July 29, 2011

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas couple traveled from their home in Nevada to the Florida church where they were married 40 years ago to kill themselves in an apparent suicide pact, police said.

A pastor found Bruce Wright and his wife, Patricia Wright, Sunday morning beneath an oak tree behind Friendship United Methodist Church in Punta Gorda, about 80 miles south of Tampa. Two guns were nearby.

"He used a shotgun to his head and she used the rifle," said Bob Carpenter, a spokesman for the Charlotte County, Fla., sheriff's office. "It was in the head, too. It was a pact."

The husband, 60, was found dead, and his wife, 57, died Wednesday after several days on life support at an area hospital, Carpenter said.
