BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Two people were found dead in what investigators believe was a murder-suicide at the Beverly Hilton, just hours before the Daytime Emmy Awards were to be held at the posh hotel, police said Saturday.
Police responding to a report of a shooting late Friday found a man in his late 60s and a woman in her mid 50s dead from gunshot wounds in a hotel room, Beverly Hills Police Lt. Mark Rosen said.
