HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) - Investigators say the deaths of a man and woman in Hastings appears to be a case of murder suicide.

Police say the woman, in her late 20s, and the man, in his early 30s, were boyfriend and girlfriend and both lived at the home where their bodies were found by a relative.

Reports says investigators scoured the property for evidence on Tuesday. One detective searched the roof while another looked through long grass in the backyard.

Authorities say the deaths apparently happened within 24 hours of when the bodies were found.
