Local high school teacher shooting death ruled murder-suicide


The shooting death of a University High School teacher and her husband Monday night has been ruled a murder-suicide. Evidence indicates the husband shot and killed his wife before killing himself.

The two dead bodies were found in a truck at the intersection of Old Robinson Road and Loop 340. Robinson Police Department received a call at 6:40pm on Monday about a male bleeding inside a white 2010 Chevrolet pick up truck.

Authorities responded to investigate and found 48-year-old Stancel Howard Price Jr. and 48-year-old Nancy Ann Price dead inside the truck with gunshot wounds to the head. 

Justice of the Peace Kristi DeCluitt pronounced the male and female dead around 7:30pm. Both the bodies have been sent to Southwestern Institute of Forensic Science in Dallas for autopsies. 

Nancy Price was a math teacher at University High School in Waco for nine years. She joined Waco ISD in August of 1998. She taught two years at University Middle School and four years at Cesar Chavez Middle School also.

In 2011-2012, Price was named University High's Outstanding Teacher.

University High Principal Bill Shepard said in a statement, "Just three days ago we were on top of the world having won a state championship in soccer, now we are experiencing the effects of an awful tragedy. Our hearts go out to Coach Price's two sons and other immediate family members. The Trojan nation is heartbroken. "

The case is under investigation.
