Couple dead outside Lake Canyon home, suicide call

NEW BRUNFELS — The Comal County Sheriff's Office says a call about an apparent suicide led to the bodies of a husband and wife outside a home near Canyon Lake.

Lt. Mark Reynolds on Monday identified the estranged couple as 53-year-old Mark Anthony Spencer and 52-year-old Arden Specia-Spencer. He was a real estate broker, while she was a San Antonio attorney. Both had been shot.

Investigators believe the Spencers were separated and he had been staying at the lake house.

Reynolds says the woman's mother was at the residence late Sunday afternoon and called 911 to report a suicide.

The investigation into the shootings continues, but law officers say no suspects are sought. Officials declined to describe the deaths as a murder and a suicide, pending autopsy results.
