2 found dead in Catawba County home

Deputies in Catawba County are investigating the deaths of two people found dead in a home Monday evening.

The bodies of a man and a woman were found sometime Monday in a home on Resthome Road by a family member who went to check on them. Investigators said the couple may have been shot to death.

Officials told WBTV that it appeared there was a forced entry into the home, but added it was too early in the investigation to determine what happened.

Barbara London, who identified herself as a cousin, said the couple has a young daughter, and that the deaths are a tragedy.

“These two lives had a daughter - a ten-year-old daughter - who now has both parents gone,” London said. “It’s sad... really sad that things like this have to happen.”

Investigators have not released the victims’ names or any further information
