Police continue to investigate the deaths of two elderly people in Central Lubbock. NewsChannel 11's Suleika Acosta brings us this update. An elderly couple was found dead inside their home in the 600 Block of 28th Street Monday around 6 p.m. Police entered the home after relatives knocked on the front door and found no one was answering.
Police tell us there was no sign of forced entry but that the couple had been dead for a while. They can't say exactly how long. At this time police can not confirm the names of the 87 year-old woman and a 76-year-old man. Relatives and neighbors had not seen the couple for about five weeks.
Officers were on the scene securing the home Monday until 11 p.m. We're told police will return to the home Tuesday morning to continue their investigation.
