Tyler police say a signed note found by the bodies of an ailing elderly couple said both wanted to end their suffering. The bodies of 84-year-old Charles Campbell and his 75-year-old wife, Lillian, were discovered Tuesday by their daughter in the couple's back yard.

Police say Charles Campbell apparently shot and killed his wife, then took his own life.

Police say the two were in "very bad health." Further details were not immediately released.

Police say they do not have evidence that anyone else was involved in the deaths.

Autopsies have been ordered.

The couple's daughter went to the Tyler residence after not being able to reach her parents by phone.
