Fannin County couple found dead

By Kevin Jefferies

Lake Bonham – The Fannin County Sheriff's department is investigating what may be a murder/suicide in Fannin County. North Texas E-news reports the bodies of James and Peggy Slagle were found Friday morning by a family member. A handgun was also found at the scene. Early indications seem to point to a murder-suicide of the couple. Both were in their mid-fifties.

The couple lived near Lake Bonham in Fannin County. Financial difficulties may have played a part in the tragedy. The Slagle home had a foreclosure notice posted in the Fannin County Courthouse.
