Elderly Couple Found Dead Inside Ellensburg Home

Posted: Updated:

ELLENSBURG -- An elderly couple is found dead inside their home in Ellensburg today. Right now, police are not saying much, but they do not think this is a homicide case; there was no indication of foul play.

Police say an elderly couple in their early 80's has been living in the house located on 707 Washington Ave for the past 12 years.

Neighbors say their health has been failing. They say the woman has been sick and man had been taking care of her.

Neighbors also say the couple's health is part of the reason why a phone call didn't happen sooner. Mail had been piling up for week and half in the elderly couple's mail box. Neighbors called police today. Police arrived at the house at noon.

Police are waiting for autopsy results which are due tomorrow. Names have not been released. KNDO will update you on the developments of this story.
