Police: Elderly Indian Wells Couple Died in Murder, Suicide

The deaths of a man and woman in Indian Wells last month appear to be a murder-suicide, authorities said Monday.

Evidence gathered in the deaths of Gail Temple, 75, of Indian Wells and 74-year-old Robert Small of Rancho Mirage "indicates this was a murder/suicide," Riverside County sheriff's Deputy Armando Munoz said.

Deputies who responded to a "suspicious death" report in the 77-300 block of Sioux Drive early on May 16 found Small dead and Temple with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, Munoz said. She died at a hospital later that morning.

Munoz declined to disclose the relationship between the two.
