Mesa PD: Father and daughter found dead inside car at hotel, investigation underway

MESA, AZ - The Mesa Police Department is investigating two people found dead inside a car at a hotel Tuesday night.
Police say the man and girl were found outside the Country Inn and Suites near Power Road and the US60 around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. Police believe the 67-year-old man was the father of the 14-year-old girl. 
Police say homicide detectives are still investigating what exactly led up to their deaths, but initial reports lead them to believe it was a murder-suicide situation. Police say a firearm was located inside the vehicle and the two may have been recently evicted for non-payment from the hotel.
