A former police officer killed himself Saturday night after a highway chase with New Jersey State police, who later discovered the body of the man's wife in the vehicle's trunk, reports the Associated Press.
Franklin Osgood, 61, a former police officer in Providence, RI, was pronounced dead at about 11:30 p.m. at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey. His wife, Mary Jo Osgood, was pronounced dead at the scene about two hours later.
New Jersey State Troopers located the car Osgood was driving Saturday night. Osgood refused to pull over and eventually ran off the road, hit a guardrail, and struck a car driven by a trooper.
Troopers found Osgood with a self-inflicted gunshot wound when they approached the car. Mary Jo Osgood's body was discovered in the trunk.
