Officials have not specified the nature of the 911 call that initially led officials to the residence, how long the two were believed to have been dead or any other details, pending further investigation.
Investigators from the department’s Central Homicide Unit and Perris Station responded to the scene and assumed the investigation. Their investigation is active and ongoing.
