Transcript for Texas police hunt for killer after finding New Hampshire couple dead
on a cross-country road trip found buried in a shallow grave on a beach. Authorities say the husband and wife were killed, and their rv reportedly stolen and driven to Mexico. Here's Stephanie Ramos. Reporter: Tonight, police are on the hunt for a killer, after the bodies of a New Hampshire couple were discovered buried in a remote beach in Texas. Two innocent people come here to enjoy the beauty we have, and their lives were taken. Reporter: Police are searching for a person of interest seen on surveillance video driving into Mexico in this pickup truck with its trailer. The couple's family says the pair were avid road-trippers and were headed to Florida, where they planned to sell Christmas trees. They're always in contact with the families. So even one day out of contact is strange. Reporter: Police say they set up their trailer October 15th on the beach. And authorities spotted the truck at a border crossing in Mexico on October 21st. The couple was reported missing on October 23rd, and four days later, the gruesome discovery was made after their cell phone pinged on padre island. You never think it will be you. And then it is. And it's hard. Reporter: Police have not released the couple's cause of death. Tom, they are expected to release more information tomorrow. Stephanie, thank you. Next to the hostage standoff
