Posted: Updated:

CARLSBAD (CNS) - Police Friday were investigating the "suspicious" deaths of an elderly couple in their home, a sergeant said.

The bodies were found inside a residence in the 7300 block of San Benito Street near Batiquitos Drive about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, after police receiving a call from a family member requesting that officers check on the couple, Sgt. Mickey Williams said.

The preliminary investigation led investigators to determine the deaths occurred under suspicious circumstances, according to Williams, who said the couple had been dead "less than a day or two" when discovered.

Their names were withheld pending notification of family members, Williams said.
