Berkeley, Cal., Feb 10 (AP)—The bodies of a model and her husband were found in their apartment here last night, and Police Inspector A. R. Frock said it was murder and suicide.

The victims were David E. Cary, 30, an instructor at the L. Ron Hubbard Dianetics institute of Los Angeles; and his wife, Helen, 28, a model at the California College of Arts and Crafts.

Police theorized that Mrs. Cary shot her husband once in the chest, then turned a .38 caliber pistol on herself. She had been shot once thru the roof of the mouth. Frock said the pair apparently had been dead 10 days or more. Police knew of no motive for the shootings.

A spokesman for the Dianetics institute said Cary took a leave of absence a month ago. The spokesman described dianetics as a "new science of mental health and thought."
