The deaths of two men in Denham Springs were ruled a murder-suicide.

The bodies of 81 year old Gary Savoie and 24 year old Gary Salpietra were discovered in a mobile home Sunday.  Firefighters found them after responding to a fire.

Deputies say Salpietra shot Savoie, then used gasoline to start the fire before shooting himself.  Family members say Savoie unofficially adopted Salpietra when he was a young boy.  The two men lived together.
