There is no sign of trauma or a break-in at the home where an elderly couple were found dead in Convoy today.
Gardai are awaiting the outcome of post mortems following the discovery of the bodies of the married couple today.
The couple were found dead in the village just after 1.30pm.
A relative made the discovery at the house in Milltown and contacted Gardai immediately.
The couple were discovered in a bedroom in the house.
The house was sealed off and a full forensic investigation was carried out by Gardai.
Donegal county coroner Dr Denis McCauley also attended the scene.
The bodies were removed from the house and post mortems are due to take place at Letterkenny University Hospital.
The course of the Garda investigation will be determined by the findings of the post mortems.
The couple were very well-known in the area.
The man was in his 80s and his wife was in her 70s.
A Garda source said that there was no sign of trauma to the couple and there were also no signs of a break-in to the white-washed terraced home on the outskirts of the village.
“We obviously have to examine every possible cause of death but at this stage it does not appear as if there was a break-in or that there was any sign of trauma.
“The results of the post mortems will determine what direction any future investigation will take,” said the Garda source.Tags:
