BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) -

Police are investigating the deaths of a husband and wife whose bodies were found in their Southeast Texas home.

Beaumont police say autopsies were scheduled Tuesday. Investigators are waiting for results to help determine whether the deaths were a murder-suicide.

Police say a co-worker of the 57-year-old man became concerned when he didn't show up as scheduled Monday. The couple's daughter lives nearby and she then went to the home to check on her parents.

Beaumont police say the man and the 55-year-old woman were dead at the scene. Names of the couple were not immediately released.

No preliminary cause of death was announced.
