SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The final results from the Medical Examiner's Office, regarding the deaths of four people in two different cases believed to be murder-suicides, are still pending Thursday. 

Two females were found dead Wednesday morning in the Casa de Oro neighborhood near Spring Valley.

The bodies have been identified by a friend as a DA employee and her granddaughter.

The gruesome discovery was made by a close family friend after not hearing from them for several days.

At approximately 8:00 a.m., neighbors in the community flagged down a California Highway Patrol (CHP) officer after an odor was detected coming from a residence in the 4100 block of Avoyer Place. Officers conducted a welfare check at the residence and discovered the two deceased females.

They have been identified as 56-year-old DA employee Marshelle Newby and Newby's 16-year-old granddaughter. 

Family and friends said Newby was the sole caretaker of her special-needs granddaughter. 

The district attorney's office issued a statement calling Newby an outstanding DA employee for the last 23 years. The statement added, "Our office is grieving and our hearts go out to her family and friends." 

According to sheriff's officials, they were both found lying on a bed in a back bedroom and it appears they have been there for several days due to the state of decomposition of their bodies.

Officials believe the bodies may have been there for up to a week, but this hasn't been confirmed. 

Authorities say a note was found at the scene, but they are declining to say what the note said. 

Deputies from the Sheriff's Rancho San Diego Station and Sheriff's Homicide Detail are currently investigating the case. Sheriff's officials say there are no signs of forced entry or a struggle. Officials say there are no outstanding suspects at this time.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Homicide Detail at (858) 974-2321, after hours at (858) 565-5200. You can also remain anonymous by calling CrimeStoppers at (888) 580-8477 and be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
