Couple found shot dead in pickup in New Mexico were Texans

Bodies found on I-40

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – New Mexico State Police say a man and a woman found fatally shot inside a pickup truck parked along Interstate 40 west of Albuquerque were a married couple from Texas.

Lt. Elizabeth Armijo identified the couple found dead Thursday as 31-year-old Jacob Kokotkiewicz and 32-year-old Ursula Tammy Kokotkiewicz, both of Flowermound, Texas.

Armijo says both were shot in the head and that the man had a handgun between his legs.

Armijo says investigators are trying to determine a motive.

An officer discovered the bodies after stopping to check the welfare of the occupants of the vehicle, which was parked on the eastbound shoulder.
