Former NBA ref, wife found dead

New Orleans — A former NBA referee shot and killed himself in a suburban New Orleans hotel room on the same day his wife was found strangled at their Houston-area home last week, authorities said Wednesday.

A law-enforcement official in Montgomery County, Texas, said Troy Raymond, 46, was a "person of interest" in the death of his wife, Leslie Anderson Raymond, whose body was discovered last Thursday at their home in Spring.

Troy Raymond's body was discovered at a hotel in Jefferson Parish. The coroner's office said he shot himself in the head.

Tim Holifield, a Montgomery County constable, said that Raymond hasn't been named a suspect in his 41-year-old wife's killing and it's premature to connect their deaths.

"At this point, to call him anything other than a person of interest post-mortem would be unfair and improper," Holifield said.
