MONROVIA, Ind. (May 28, 2016)–Morgan County Sheriff’s investigators are investigating two people dead inside a home near Monrovia, Saturday afternoon.

The Sheriff’s department received a call from a family member asking police to check the welfare of a couple at their home in the 8700 block of North Briarwood Lake West Drive.

The family member said the couple had not been heard from “for some time.”

According to Morgan County Sheriff, Robert Downey, deputies looked into a window of the home and observed two people dead inside.
