According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal the Florida couple called authorities October 26, to say that two men broke into their Deltona home and shot them.

Along with staging a home invasion, Teixeira, 35 and Pelton, 36 went the extra mile and shot themselves as well, hoping to convince investigators that they were legitimate victims.

It obviously didn't work because both were charged with providing false information to law enforcement, and Teixeira was charged with an additional count of tampering with evidence.

Almost two weeks later, however, the police were no longer looking for the phantom masked attackers, they were arresting the couple for providing false information to law enforcement, a misdemeanor charge. He was being held Tuesday on $3,500 bail. After a brief exchange with the suspects, the husband was shot in the leg and the wife was shot in the arm, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Deputies investigating the scene became skeptical of their accounts when they found bleach and dry blood in the home.

They even had deputies searching for suspects they invented, which they said fled in an unknown vehicle, authorities said.

Confirming that 24 people had been killed, Afzal said that all the passengers belonged to Kohat area, the Dawn News reported. He also ordered the authorities to provide immediate medical treatment and relief to all those injured in the accident.

"If this incident just occurred and they called police right away, why would you have dried blood and why do we have bleach all over the house?"

"They shot themselves for the objective of committing insurance fraud", Volusia County Mike Sheriff Chitwood said on November 7, announcing the arrests.

Chitwood said Pelton shot herself in the lower left forearm and fractured the bone and Teixeira had a bullet enter the rear of his left calf and exit the front of the calf, reports state.

What actually happened, according to police: the couple shot themselves in a bid to "collect money" from the homeowner.

Officers arrived to find the married couple had suffered gunshot wounds and were claiming that $7,000 was taken from a safe.
