The bodies of a man and woman were found inside a house in the 6900 block of Wyoming Avenue, police said. Family members hadn't heard from the couple in days and contacted authorities.
La Mesa Police detectives are treating the death investigation with suspicious circumstances due to some traumatic injuries seen on one of the victims.
Neighbors were shocked to hear about the deaths and say the couple was quiet and kept to themselves.
"She was always doing yard work -- and he was always walking around," said a neighbor.
Details on the circumstances of the fatalities and the names of the deceased were not disclosed.
