BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. -- Authorities in northwestern Arizona say two adults and teenage boy have been found dead inside a Bullhead City home.

City police say the deaths appear to be a murder-suicide as investigators don't believe anyone else is involved.

Authorities didn't release any details, saying autopsies are scheduled to determine the cause of death.

Police identified the three as 53-year-old Robert Bryan Ulan, 47-year-old Valerie Jean Ulan and 17-year-old Jay Jeffrey Artz.

They say Robert Ulan had been employed with the city since 1999, most recently in the wastewater division.

Artz was a student at Mohave High School.

The relationship of the teen to the Ulans wasn't immediately clear.

Police were called to the home Thursday morning when Robert Ulan failed to show up for work and the bodies were found.
