LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) — Police in Longmont suspect that a 38-year-old father killed his 3-year-old daughter before killing himself.

The bodies of the girl and her father were found in the bedroom of the man's home on Sunday after his estranged wife showed up and no one answered the door. Police commander Jeff Satur said the man was taking care of the child for the weekend.

He told the Longmont Times-Call (http://bit.ly/rowSjK ) that police found a note inside the home but declined to provide details about what it said.

Authorities haven't released the names of the man or his daughter. Autopsies are scheduled Tuesday.
