TARBORO (WTVD) -- The Edgecombe County Sheriff's Office is investigating the deaths of a Tarboro couple.

The sheriff's office received a call Monday at 6:38 a.m. concerning a welfare check at a residence on NC Hwy 97 East. Once inside the residence, deputies discovered a woman's body in a bedroom. She appeared to have died as a result of gunshot wounds.

The woman's husband was found in another room with what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
