AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The Travis County medical examiner’s office has determined the deaths of an elderly couple found in their home were homicides.

Police said Tuesday the bodies of 83-year-old Billie Shelton and 85-year-old Sidney Shelton were found in their Austin home on Monday. Police originally said the pair didn’t have apparent injuries but said Tuesday that they likely died from trauma.

A caretaker called police Monday to report a burglary after finding the couple’s door open.

Police say no one has been arrested and no suspects have been identified.
