Two Dead Bodies Found Inside West Lubbock Home

The discovery of two dead bodies sends Lubbock authorities on a quest for answers. The investigation is centered around a mobile home in the 9700 block of West 19th Street. As of Wednesday evening, the home remained blocked off and is still considered a crime scene.

Just after 4pmWednesday afternoon, Sheriff's deputies received a call that someone was dead inside the home. When they arrived, they found not one, but two dead bodies. Investigators say a white male and white female, who was wheelchair bound, were inside the home with what they call "obvious injuries." They believe the couple was married.

Investigators did find a rifle inside, but aren't saying exactly how the two died. "We have some speculation, but until we get down to the hard facts of it, we're going to wait to release any other information on it," said Lieutenant Cody Scott, Lubbock County Sheriff's Office.

Scott tells NewsChannel 11 they are awaiting autopsy reports before calling this a homicide. As of Wednesday night, they wouldn't release the victims' names because family hadn't been notified.

Also of note in the case, a car was missing from the residence. Investigators located it a short time later and are questioning the people who were with the vehicle.

Investigators tell us they talked to neighbors to get a feel of who the couple was, but they don't believe there was a history of domestic violence.
