AIDE MAY HAVE KILLED KORESH, SELF

Forensic experts suspect David Koresh's chief lieutenant shot him in the head with a rifle as the compound near Waco went up in flames, then put the muzzle under his chin and killed himself, a newspaper reported.

The Houston Chronicle said Thursday it was unclear whether Steven Emil Schneider killed Koresh at the cult leader's request.

According to the Chronicle, the pathologists say Schneider and Koresh died in the compound's communications room soon after the fire started.
