Investigators believe a 66-year-old Dallas-area man killed his estranged 24-year-old wife and stored her body in a freezer before taking his own life.

Police in Arlington, Texas, on Monday located the bodies of Edward Rogers Jr. and Alyssa Marie Mejia Rogers in the house they once shared in the 5200 block of Livermore Drive. An affidavit says a friend told police that Rogers on Sunday showed him the body in the freezer where he still lived.

Police are investigating the deaths as a murder-suicide. A medical examiner determined Rogers shot himself. Cause of the death was pending for the wife as police try to determine when she died.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the couple met online — she was from the Philippines — and they married two years ago but were divorcing.

Police had responded to disturbance calls at the home.
