Couple Found Deceased Inside Home

On September 12th, 2012 at approximately 5:24 p.m., the Sacramento Police Department responded to the 5100 block of 15th Avenue on a report of two dead bodies that were discovered by a family member while checking their welfare.   

Family had not talked to the deceased in a few days, was worried and called a local relative.  That relative arrived at the home, knocked on the doors and windows then went into the house finding the two bodies. The police were then notified.
