LOS ANGELES (AP) - Sheriff’s homicide detectives are investigating after the decomposing bodies of a man and a woman were found at a Los Angeles County home.

Officials say deputies conducting a welfare check made the discovery Wednesday evening after noticing a strong odor coming from inside the house in Hacienda Heights.

Investigators say the victims were found in separate rooms and appeared to have been assaulted.

The woman, said to be in her 80s, lived at the house and hadn’t been seen in about a week. The victims’ names have not been released.

Officials say deputies also discovered the woman’s car, a 2001 Toyota Camry, was missing from the house.

Detectives have not named a motive or any suspect description.
