Teacher, husband found shot to death in truck on side of road

Teacher, husband found shot to death in truck on side of road

A nine millimetre handgun was found between the legs of Jacob Kokotkiewicz, who was seated in the driver's seat of the vehicle.

State police said that last Thursday, an officer was conducting traffic control for an unrelated hazardous-materials incident on Interstate 40, when a blue Dodge pickup with a camper shell was spotted on the shoulder.

Jacob Kokotkiewicz, 31, and Ursula Tammy Kokotkiewicz, 32, were a married couple from Flower Mound, Texas.

It is unclear if the couple died in a murder-suicide.

He says police didn't find any external evidence at the scene and no other party is believed to be involved.

Britney Spears suffered just such a fate when she arrived in Israel this week, and ended up having to cancel a high-profile meeting.

Officers first thought the vehicle was stranded, media officer Carl Christensen said. Investigators on scene disclosed that both subjects appeared to have suffered a gunshot wound to the head. CBC News has reached out to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, Global Affairs Canada and the RCMP, but has yet to receive a response.

Ursula Kokotkiewicz was a teacher at North Dallas High School, according to a faculty database.

According to the Ontario College of Teachers, Kokotkiewicz graduated from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto in 2014, and was registered to teach in the province that September.

Tributes have been pouring in on Kokotkiewicz's Instagram account, with some people calling her "Ms. K".

"Looking at her pictures makes it seem so unreal, especially because I had just talked to her before she left".
