MANTECA, CA - Manteca police detectives are investigating the deaths of a man and woman found in their home Monday morning. The homicides are Manteca's first in 2008.
The couple, who were related, were in their mid 40s, said Manteca police spokesman Rex Osborn. He said they were found about 9:30 a.m. in their home on the 1000 block of Gladiola Place by a person believed to be a relative.
Osborn said the man and woman had been shot. Investigators think the deaths may be a murder-suicide.
It didn't appear as if children were living in the home, Osborn said.
The victims' names have not been released.
Neighbors told police they believed the couple's home was in foreclosure. News10 checked and found the home was bought new in July 2004 for $440,000 and the owner had been trying to sell it for $305,000 since September.
