(BLUFFTON) - Police say the deaths of a couple from northeastern Indiana were suicides.

Bluffton Police Chief Tammy Schaffer says 26-year-old Samuel Stirlen and 24-year-old wife Kayla Stirlen left notes to family members at their Bluffton apartment, but didn't explain why they decided to commit suicide.

The Bluffton News-Banner reports witnesses said they saw the couple sitting in a car with the doors open near the tracks before they were struck by the train shortly about 8 p.m. Tuesday. One witness says he also saw the couple approach an earlier train.
