Two Found Dead in Vigo County Home

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP):  Authorities say detectives are investigating the deaths of two people whose bodies were found inside a western Indiana home.

Vigo County Chief Deputy Clark Cottom says deputies went to the house in a rural area about 10 miles south of Terre Haute after a family member called Sunday evening concerned about the residents' safety.

Cottom tells the Tribune-Star that deputies broke into the house and found the two bodies inside. He says investigators found no signs of forced entry and that the relatives hadn't heard from the residents for “quite some time.”

Cottom says the department doesn't believe the deaths posed a public safety concern.

An autopsy was planned to determine what caused the deaths. The identities of those who died weren't immediately released.
