Two people found dead in Colorado Springs home

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Police said two people were found dead in a Colorado Springs home Wednesday morning.

The home is in the 1500 block of Bates Drive, which is in the area of Circle Drive and Constitution Avenue.

Police responded to a call shortly after 10:30 a.m. asking officers to check the welfare of the occupants inside the home.

When they arrived on scene, they found a man and woman dead inside the home.

Both of the victims are adults in their 60s.

Neighbors told FOX21 the woman had been home bound for years and the man was a friend who took care of her.

Bethany Wood, another neighbor, said she heard banging on the windows of the victim’s home Wednesday morning.

When she confronted the couple outside, they said their sister was inside and she hadn’t heard from her in 10 days.

“His work hasn’t heard from [him] in a week so that’s when the red flag went up and they were looking for answers,”  Wood said.

The investigation is ongoing and detectives are conducting interviews and processing the crime scene.

Police say there is no danger to the public at this time.
