A Typed Suicide Note?
COPPELL, Texas -- When police arrived at a suburban Dallas mayor's sprawling upscale home, they quickly realized something was very wrong. Rather than attend a City Council meeting, Mayor Jayne Peters had apparently taped an envelope to the door with a key and an ominous note inside.

Something unpleasant awaited them, warned the typed missive.

Inside the two-story brick house, Coppell police found a horrific scene Tuesday night. Peters and her 19-year-old college-bound daughter were both dead of gunshot wounds to the head, an apparent murder-suicide committed by the mayor, investigators say.

Three other notes were found at the house. But they did not offer an explanation for the deaths, only instructions for managing family affairs, such as care for the dogs, Coppell Deputy Police Chief Steve Thomas said Wednesday.

Bob Mahalik, mayor pro tem who is now acting mayor of the city, said he had a gut feeling something was wrong when the usually prompt mayor didn't show up for the meeting Tuesday night.

"But nowhere in your wildest dreams did you think it would be that far not right," he said.

Thomas said a semiautomatic handgun was used in the shootings, and there were no signs of a struggle.

A small collection of flowers, wreaths and cards decorated the front porch of the Peters' 3,850 square-foot brick home, where the mayor and her daughter, Corrine, lived alone. A printed letter said: "Please know that you are loved no matter what happens. I know that God is with you and giving you comfort. You both are with Don, a wonderful husband and father. A family again."

The mayor's husband, Donald Peters, died of cancer in 2008 at the age of 58.

Jayne Peters was a contract software developer who served as mayor of Coppell, a city of about 40,000 located 15 miles northwest of Dallas, for the past year. Her term was to expire in 2012. She had been a council member since 1998.

Re: A Typed Suicide Note?
One typed note is odd but there were 3 other notes?

That does not ring true.

As was noted in another thread about this tragedy is that it is also odd as women typically do not shoot themselves or a loved one in the head, it is typically a chest shot not a head shot.

It says the woman's late husband was a contract software developer. I'd like to know exactly what he developed and who he developed for.

Also, women typically do not use a gun to commit suicide.

Um, they tend to be generalities because there is a pattern. Hence, I used the word "typically". I did not state "women NEVER"; again, most of the time (typically) women do not shoot themselves in the head.

I think in the back of most peoples minds who commit suicide also, they don't want people to think they offed themself. This could have been an underlying subconscious thought layered with the psychotic thinking, that led to the typed note on the door.

Right, but this wasn't a poor drug addict with a history of depression (as far as we know), this was the mayor of a town who had been in public office 12 years. Obviously, she could handle everyday "stress." The only situation I would accept of a murder/suicide is if she was extremely "religious" and found out her daughter turned out to be pregnant or something similar to protect their 'reputation.' And even that is pushing it in my opinion.

Hopefully the investigators will check her computer for the draft copy of the notes.

If I were to really plan something like this and typed a suicide note, I would work on writing the note to state the exact reasons and there would be several edits done to the original.

I know that I don't like my handwriting and type much faster than I write, I also will re-read what I have written and will edit, but still to leave a note stating what they will find inside taped to the door plus 3 other notes just doesn't ring true.
