ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. — A man and woman found dead inside a home in Orange Wednesday night were believed to be relatives of former NASCAR driver Robby Gordon, according to neighbors.

Authorities were called to the home located in the 1400 block of North Kennymead Street about 5 p.m. after a neighbor discovered two bodies inside the home, said Lt. Fred Lopez with the Orange Police Department.

The neighbor went into the home after being called by a family member to check on the occupants, Lopez said.

Arriving officers found the bodies of a 68-year-old man and a 57-year-old woman, Lopez said.

The Orange County coroner’s office identified the man and woman as Robert and Sharon Gordon.

Authorities have not confirmed the relationship between Robby Gordon and the man and woman found in the home.

The home has been owned by Robby Gordon since 1989, the Los Angeles Times reported.
