Sunday, the sister of one of the victims went to her brother's home only to find him and his girlfriend dead.
Authorities say 30-year-old Danny Lewis Richardson of Wilson and 22-year-old Latosha Denise West had been dead for at least a couple of days when they were found.
Sheriff Wayne Gay with the Wilson County Sheriff's Department says they have yet to recover a weapon and they see no signs of forced entry in the home.
An autopsy was performed Monday on both bodies, at Pitt County Memorial Hospital in Greenville to positively identify the victims.
Tuesday, Sheriff Gay says he will release more information in the case.
