Police said that it appeared that the man, named in US reports as Mathew Hodgkinson - who is thought to be his son-in-law and also his former lover - had killed the local talk show host Mr Rogers before turning the gun on himself in a failed suicide attempt.

Iberville sheriff Brett Stassi said: "This looks to be a murder and attempted suicide.

"Rogers was found with a single gun shot wound to the head and Mathew was on the floor with a gun shot wound to the head."

Before moving to the US, Mr Rogers founded and was a principal of the former Academy of Dancing and Performing Arts in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.
