LIVINGSTON COUNTY, Mich. -- Police are not releasing the results of an autopsy conducted on an Oceola Township couple that was found dead Thursday.
Police said the one of the couple's sons went to check on his mother, Brenda Kowalski, 58, and stepfather, Richard, 65, at their home in the 5400 block of Lyngre Drive Thursday afternoon because he had not heard from them in a couple of days and found them both dead in the kitchen.
Police are staying tight-lipped and are not releasing any details of the autopsy or if they are investigating a murder/ suicide or a double homicide.
Neighbors told Local 4 they think the couple was shot to death because investigators asked whether they heard any gunshots in the area.
Neighbors said they were not aware of any personal or money problems and the couple always seemed happy.
Detectives said there was no sign of forced entry.
The home is in Livingston County, about 45 miles northwest of Detroit.
