    The child was later left unharmed at Bengston’s relative’s residence in Columbia Heights, Dial said, and police do not believe the child witnessed the incident.

    Bengston returned to his home in West Glacier, where responding police and Flathead County Sheriff’s deputies found his truck in the driveway. Deputies set up a perimeter and SWAT attempted to make contact, but Bengston did not reply.

    Searching the residence, they found him dead at about 4 a.m. on March 8, Dial said, apparently from a single gunshot to the head from the same pistol used on Rodriguez. None of the responding officers heard the shot.

    Dial said the woman reported that there had been arguments between her and her husband before, but nothing to indicate violence. The couple was not estranged, he said.

    Dial said investigators believe the relationship between Rodriguez and the woman was a professional one.
