ATHENS, Ala. - Police say a north Alabama woman and her son are dead in what appears to be a murder-suicide.

Police say 73-year-old May Chao Mei Hu and her 39-year-old son Robin Shen Hu were found dead in their home in Athens on Wednesday afternoon.

A delivery driver found a note on the door of the house and called police.

Athens police say a preliminary investigation shows the two died of gunshot wounds in a murder-suicide, but an autopsy is need to confirm the findings.
